KLEM Community Champions


The 2024 KLEM-land Community Champion recipients have been announced. Five individuals have been selected from nominations received at KLEM Radio.

The Community Champions program is an effort to recognize young adults who are making a difference where we live! A vibrant part of that mix is the talented class of young professionals.

This year’s recipients include the following six champions:

Justin Freking- Perspective Insurance

Amy Jungers- Development Director, Gehlen Catholic School

Dustin Wright- CEO Floyd Valley Healthcare

TJ Britton- Scooters Natural Meats & Coach at Gehlen Catholic

Michaela Brown- Singer, Cookbook Author, Browns Century Theatre

Nominees were judged in categories including career or education success, mentorship/leadership, and civic/philanthropic activities. Over the next several weeks KLEM will highlight each recipient and the many contributions they have made to the community.

The winners will each receive a commemorative trophy from Plymouth Awards and Engraving. The Community Champions will each be showcased with an interview on KLEM Radio, along with a feature on the KLEM website and Facebook page.

Sponsors of the second annual Community Champions program include: Wells Enterprises, Hy-Vee, Floyd Valley Healthcare, Envision Floorings, Total Motors, and Primebank.
