Angela Gloy and Deanne Bishop (left) and Ashley Colglazier (right) of Front Line Strong accept their certificate in recognition of their award for Organization. The group, who is excited to be named Organization of the Year, was formed when the pandemic first hit local nursing homes in July last year. Ashley Colglazier, Lauren Klima, Deanne Bishop and Angela Gloy are the original founders, and have since added Val Foster to their team. The goal of the organization is to offer support to the local healthcare community through gift bags, food delivery and words of encouragement. Since its inception, Front Line Strong has provided support to every department of the hospital and clinics (including the clinic in Ogallala), nursing home, assisted living, all county fire departments, sheriff’s office, pharmacy, the local mortician, school staff and teachers and Westview employees.
