DES MOINES, Iowa – Several North Iowans were honored Friday at the 32nd Annual Main Street Iowa Awards.

Main Street Mason City and Allyson Krull, Charles City Community Revitalization and Nancy Clarke, and Greater Franklin County Area Chamber of Commerce and Sister Carmen Hernandez all won 2018 Leadership Awards, which recognize inspirational leadership and volunteers who make significant contributions to the local Main Street program.

“The Main Street Iowa program is a powerful catalyst for local revitalization and community investment,” says Governor Kim Reynolds. “As I travel across the state, I see over and over that Main Streeters are passionate, innovative and creative. They’re also committed to making their downtowns - and our state - a stronger, more sustainable place to live, work and raise a family.”

18 individual projects were also awarded out of 117 submitted nominations and 13 communities were recognized for the private dollar investments made in the purchase and revitalization of properties within their respective commercial districts.
