Heritage Awards

The 2018 Heritage Awards honor individuals from southwest Iowa for their professional and personal contributions to the community. 

The awards will be presented to the following individuals who excel in four areas: 

  • Arts and Humanities - Barb and Terry Lindsley

  • Health and Human Services - Connie Blietz

The event, now in its 35th year, will be hosted by CHI Health Foundation and Mercy Council Bluffs hospital on March 24 at the Mid-America Center, 1 Arena Way, in Council Bluffs.

The Heritage Awards were created to celebrate and pay homage to those who have enriched the community and established a legacy on which future Heritage Award honorees can build.

Proceeds from the event support professional development opportunities for Mercy Council Bluffs hospital employees.
