Kevin Horn Gives Back For One Reason: He Likes Helping Kids

October 19, 2021

Giving Back

Kevin remembers that during National Jaycees Week in the late 1980s, he and his fellow Alliance Jaycees would visit the former Nebraska Boys Ranch and play basketball and other games with the boys residing there. The joy he found in being surrounded by young people has continued throughout his life, impacting many lives.

After graduating from Brown Institute of Broadcasting in Minneapolis, Kevin enjoyed 30 years of radio broadcasting in Nebraska.

Though he is now the Box Butte County Clerk of the District Court, he has continued to be involved with broadcasting Hemingford High football games and supporting kids in many ways, including driving an Alliance Public Schools Activity Bus for 23 years. He also has served on the Box Butte County 4-H Council, Extension Board and Alliance Chamber of Commerce Board.

The Gift of a Scholarship

As Kevin finishes his final three-year term with the Snow-Redfern Board of Directors this year, he has been contemplating how he might help more kids through Snow Redfern. With his radio broadcasts of Hemingford Bobcats football games, Kevin has teamed up with Eagle Communications (KCOW, Alliance) to offer a Snow Redfern Foundation scholarship that will provide financial assistance to a graduate of the Hemingford High School Class of 2022.

A lifelong Nebraska resident, Kevin highly regards the values and work ethic instilled within our rural communities and embedded within our culture. As a parent, husband, county official and volunteer, Kevin has helped to embody these standards and ideals through all he does, which is a lot!
