In May at our Annual Dinner, Galen Stehlik was awarded the 2020 Vision of the Future award for his relationship and long-term commitment to our services. He is truly a friend of Goodwill. Galen connected with Goodwill in the early 1980s and has remained an active supporter ever since. He currently serves on our Goodwill Foundation Board of Directors and he served as our Goodwill Industries Operating Board Chair in 1997.
Prior to his connection with Goodwill, Galen served in the U.S. Air Force Reserve for 8 years. Following graduation from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL), he completed his law degree in 1977. Over the years, Galen practiced law locally with several firms until opening his own firm, Stehlik Law Firm, where he currently practices with his son, Mitch.
Galen has been actively involved within the Grand Island community in numerous ways including serving as YMCA Board Chair, a Grand Island Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, the Kaufman Cummings Charitable Board of Trustees, and many others. We are thankful for the time and expertise he has given to our Goodwill.
