HENDERSON, Ky. (WEHT) The Kentucky League of Cities has awarded three Henderson officials for excellence. Donna Stinnett, Connie Galloway and Ray Nix are being honored for their service.

“Donna, Connie, and Ray are extremely important members of our management team at the City of Henderson. They each have unique qualities and support our goals of employee, citizen, and overall community interaction and successful communication,” remarked Henderson Mayor Steve Austin. “Donna Stinnett keeps our citizens in touch with not only directly related city happenings but also events and entertainment opportunities for the entire community,” he added. “Connie brings loads of experience to our HR Department ‒ She’s seen most conceivable situations come and go in her tenure with the City of Henderson and has learned from each and every one. Our Codes Administer Ray Nix came to us from an industrial setting, and that gives him a very wide view in working through problems and opportunities.”
