The Kearney Hub's Pyro Chic blog recently placed at two state award contests. The blog won first place in the community service category, and third in the new idea category of the Nebraska Press Association's annual contest. Pyro Chic also placed first in the blog category of the annual Nebraska Press Women contest.
Pyro Chic Kim Schmidt credited KVFD's members for the blog's success.
"In no way does this honor belong to me or the Hub, but Kearney Fire. Had it not been for the support and patience from everyone I would've never been able to complete Firefighter I, or the blog series," she said. "Thank you for allowing me to train alongside you, and to document your dedication. It was truly an honor."
Schmidt recently became a member of the Ravenna Volunteer Fire Department.
Congratulations to Matt and Mindy Ullman on their birth of their daughter Gentry Elyse who was 8lbs 1oz and 20" long.
