Hertko Hollow Founder Selected as Finalist for the Iowa Star Award

We congratulate Dr. Edward Hertko, founder of Camp Hertko Hollow, on being selected as a finalist for The Des Moines Register’s Iowa Star Award. Dr. Herko was selected from a field of many nominations by a panel of independent judges.  The winner will be announced at a reception beginning at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, February 11, 2009 at the Temple for Performing Arts.

The purpose of The Des Moines Register’s Iowa Star Award is to honor an individual who:

  • Works to promote unity, self-empowerment and self-sufficiency for all within our community, without regard to race, gender or age.
  • Volunteers time and talent, without regard to position.
  • Works selflessly and goes beyond the recipient’s job description and normal endeavor.
  • Makes a measurable difference within the community.

The winner will receive a Steuben “Star Stream” crystal sculpture.  All finalists will be featured in The Des Moines Register in advance of the reception.

Best of luck to Dr. Hertko!
