Monday, February 22, 2021

On Wednesday, McKnight’s Senior Living announced the winners of its third annual Women of Distinction for those who have shown a commitment to the senior living and care living industry. But out of the 17 Rising Stars, the award saw its first recipient from Nebraska: Kristen Harris, vice president of operations for Nye Health Services in Fremont.

“It’s exciting, and it makes me feel really proud for our industry in Nebraska,” she said. “To be one of the individuals promoting the quality of care and services in long-term care in Nebraska makes me very proud.”

McKnight’s Senior Living is a national media brand that provides news on senior and assisted living. Since 2003, its print edition has been published six times a year. McKnight began its Women of Distinction awards in 2018. To receive the award, recipients must be nominated, as well as reviewed by a panel of judges. On May 18, McKnight will host a virtual ceremony in which Harris and the other 16 winners will receive their awards.
