A co-owner of Shimkat Motor Co. was honored Thursday evening for his decades of devotion to the Fort Dodge community in a wide range of roles.
Bruce Shimkat received the Catalyst Award from the Greater Fort Dodge Growth Alliance during its annual dinner at the Best Western Starlite Village Inn & Suites, 1518 Third Ave. N.W.
The Catalyst Award, given to one person every year, is the highest honor bestowed by the alliance.
Shimkat described himself as “truly humbled.”
“I’m almost speechless and I don’t say a lot to start with,” he said after being presented with the award by its 2016 winner, Scott McQueen.
