Employee of the Month, Dennis Morrice KLEM Radio
Dennis Morrice – August Employee of the Month Nomination Nominated by KLEM Radio It’s appropriate that this nomination has been submitted to be awarded at the Plymouth County Fair’s Round Barn.  The LeMars Area Chamber of Commerce August Employee of the Month has been instrumental in helping coordinate the fair display right here in this historic landmark.  It gives me great pleasure to announce KLEM’s Dennis Morrice as the LeMars Area Chamber of Commerce Employee of the Month for August of 2017. Dennis joined the team at KLEM in October of 2011, continuing the station’s tradition of excellence in covering local news and events.  He works tirelessly in reporting the news for the station and updating the KLEM website with stories and pictures. His day begins early each morning shortly after 6 a.m. and often finds Dennis covering evening meetings, fires, and accidents into the wee hours of the night. Dennis has been heavily involved in the Round Barn displays.  This marks the fourth year that the LeMars Chamber Agriculture Committee and the Plymouth County Fair Board will showcase agriculture in this famous landmark building. The entire KLEM/Powell Broadcasting staff nominated Dennis for this honor and they are proud to have him as a co- worker and representative of the radio station.  Congratulations Dennis.
