He was presented the award at the Chamber’s Networking Event and Annual Meeting held Thursday, February 8 at the Morrison Institute of Technology.

The award program was instituted, and will be presented annually, to recognize individuals whose volunteerism, commitment and outstanding service have made a significant difference in the community.

Yaklich’s nomination statement reads: “Brad owns and operates Vision Source in Morrison. He is married to Beth and they have two children that are both enrolled in the Morrison schools. Brad has served on many boards. He and his family have been committed to the Morrison Community through his work on the Rotary Club of Morrison. He has served as president and will lead us into the Rotary’s 100-year celebration this spring. He has also served as director of the Harvest Hammer for the past few years and continues in that role again this coming year.

Brad has also participated in the Mapping of Morrison, is on the MADC committee and the Department of Fun committee – where he has volunteered many, many hours to bring events to the community. He has assisted other committees with their events, such as the winter skate park, the City Park and Rec department, The Morrison Chamber of Commerce, and his children’s youth sports as a coach. If there is an event in Morrison, it is likely Brad has had something to do with it – whether he led it, assisted with it, or attended it.”

Three other nominees for the award were recognized and congratulated at the event: Amanda Cook, Alex Williams and Sharon Moore. Their broad contributions include support for Morrison Hospital Foundation, community beautification, FFA support, and growth and community vitality.
