Great West Casualty Company and Michael McGowan received beSomebody awards yesterday from Siouxland CARES. Great West Casualty Company has been a long-time supporter of Siouxland CARES. Current and past Teen Court judges honored were GWCC employees as seen in this picture (Siouxland CARES President Beth Noel with Mark Galvin, Mike Yaneff, Katie Reichenbach, Jamie Meehan-Others not pictured Scott Rager and Kate Dykstra).
