Waltner Honored As Yankton’s Employee Of The Year

This year’s Yankton Disability Employment Awareness Month event was held in person Thursday.

The event recognizes local businesses who recruit employees through the South Dakota Vocational Rehabilitation Services as well as the men and women with disabilities who are thriving in their jobs.

This year’s Pat Smith Employee of the Year Award went to Megan Waltner who has worked at Aviands on Mount Marty University’s Yankton campus for seven years. Waltner enjoys going to work every day…

Waltner adds that her favorite part of her job is getting to see her coworkers…

One of the awards presented was posthumously presented to late KYNT News Director Ron Leeper for his annual reporting of the NDEAM event. Leeper was known by Dave Leonard. Leeper passed away earlier this year. His widow, Janis, accepted his award.
