Acting Administrator Honors States for Emergency Response


WASHINGTON, D.C. — Jasper Schneider, acting administrator of the Rural Utilities Service, honored three states during the NRWA Rural Water Rally in Washington, D.C.

“The administrator’s coin is really the highest award the administrator can bestow,” Schneider said.

He awarded coins to representatives from the state associations of Arkansas, Illinois, and Mississippi for their emergency response efforts after tornadoes struck each state, last year.
