Reno Unger and Sarah Brown were cited as Kutz­town Com­mu­nity Part­ner­ship’s vol­un­teers of the year and Kutz­town Strong was rec­og­nized as or­ga­ni­za­tion of the year at KCP’s an­nual meet­ing in Trin­ity Lutheran Church, Kutz­town, on Feb. 16.

The an­nual Kutz­town com­mu­nity meet­ing takes place each year as the com­mit­tees and the com­mu­nity come to­gether to rec­og­nize the achieve­ments of the

past year and out­line plans for the fu­ture. KCP pres­i­dent Jerry Sc­hearer and chair­man of the or­ga­ni­za­tion com­mit­tee, Matt Link, awarded each of the re­cip­i­ents.

Unger has been heav­ily in­volved in the brand­ing, pub­li­ca­tions and pub­lic­ity for the or­ga­ni­za­tion for the past three years and is re­tired from Kutz­town Univer­sity as Pub­lic Re­la­tions Di­rec­tor and Pro­fes­sor of Pub­lic Re­la­tions. He is also an ac­tive mem­ber of Kutz­town Strong and the Kutz­town Ro­tary Club.

Brown was given man­age­ment re­spon­si­bil­i­ties for the Kutz­town Pool con­ces­sion stand when KCP took over its ad­min­is­tra­tion last sum­mer. She in­vested seven days a week over­see­ing op­er­a­tions from Memo­rial Day through La­bor Day.

Kutz­town Strong was founded to com­bat the se­duc­tive power of sub­stance abuse among young peo­ple in re­sponse to the re­cent up­surge of deaths due to drugs in the Kutz­town and Top­ton ar­eas.

KCP’s mis­sion is to forge good com­mu­ni­ca­tion and foster mu­tual sup­port among the ma­jor el­e­ments of the Kutz­town com­mu­nity: its busi­nesses, schools, churches and univer­sity.

The first re­cip­i­ent of the or­ga­ni­za­tion award was the Kutz­town Bi­cen­ten­nial Com­mit­tee. Pre­vi­ous re­cip­i­ents of the vol­un­teer of the year award were Kutz­town res­i­dents Diane Piscitelli and San­dra Green.
