Kentucky's Governor's Ambassador Award for Courage

Date of News Release: 10/22/2012

Rebecca Henry

(Dry Ridge, KY) Mrs. Rebecca Henry, Police Telecommunicator, a nine (9) year civilian employee assigned to Post 6 was named the 2012 recipient of the Kentucky Governor's Ambassador Award for Courage. "Rebecca stands ready, on or off duty, to provide emergency assistance to citizens and visitors of the Commonwealth." said Captain Greg Crockett, Commander of Post 6. After witnessing an automobile accident near her home in April, Rebecca called 911 and assisted in stabilizing the severely wounded driver until medical crews arrived. In 2005, Rebecca also helped a gentleman who was suffering from a diabetic attack. In both cases, responders credit her with helping to save the victims' lives.

The Kentucky Governor's Ambassador Award is an opportunity to highlight stories of employees who have significantly and positively impacted the lives of their co-workers, customers, and community in the areas of customer service, courage, leadership, professional achievement, teamwork, or community service and volunteerism. Nominations may be made by an employee or private citizen.

Each recipient of the Governor's Ambassador Award will receive special recognition by having an engraved, personalized brick placed outside the Thomas D. Clark Center for Kentucky History.
