02 Broadcaster Press February 18, 2014 www.broadcasteronline.com Meet Curt Robinson By David Lias david.lias@plaintalk.net Mayor Jack Powell noted at the annual VCDC Banquet held Feb. 6 that he has the privilege of recognizing one of Vermillion’s citizens for his or her contributions to the community. This year’s recipient of the Mayor’s Community Service Award is Curt Robinson. “Many individuals and organizations have benefited from his professional advice, his dedication to his clients, and his memberships in community organizations,” Powell said. Curt is a native of St. Thomas, ND, and graduated from the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks with both a bachelor’s and master’s degrees. He and his wife, Nancy, were married in 1981 in the Dalesburg Lutheran Church, rural Vermillion. They lived in Watertown until moving to Vermillion and opening the Edward Jones office in 1987. They adopted four children, Sam, Jordan, Valerie and Daniel. Nancy passed away in December 2012. Curt is a member of Grace Baptist Church, where he has served as a deacon, Sunday School teacher, and on various church committees. He has also done mission work at Pine Ridge. “During his career as a financial advisor with Edward Jones, he has served as a mentor and field trainer for new financial advisors. He has been recognized multiple times by being invited to the Edward Jones Managing Partners Conference which is held annually to honor the top NOTICE The annual meeting of Norway Township will be on Tuesday, March 4, 2014 at 1:00 p.m. at the Clay County Highway Department on Timber Rd.

He has coached youth soccer and basketball for many years, and has led fundraising efforts to support high school tennis.

He noted that he was attracted to Vermillion for two reasons, when choosing where to start his career with Edward Jones – he wanted to live in a community of Vermillion’s size, and he wanted to live where the winters are warmer than his native North Dakota. “I thought that this (Vermillion) is a place where I can make a difference,” he said. “It’s a place where I can be involved in organizations; it’s a place where I can know people individually, and it’s been my pleasure over the past 27 years to sit down and help people with their finances, and help a number of organizations in town here with their finances, helping to raise the net worth of the community. “I can’t think of a better job. I have a wonderful employer, and I look forward to serving people many more years,” Curt said. “Thank you very much for this honor.” Read Shop the Classifieds! Jay Bottolfson, Clerk and Recycle!
