Kendra Heimbuck, a graduate of the University of Wyoming’s College of Engineering and Applied Science, received a community service award for her efforts in a Wyoming town.

Heimbuck, who earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in architectural engineering from UW in 2011, was awarded the “Rising Star” distinction at the Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce’s 53rd annual awards celebration Oct. 19. Heimbuck is the executive director of Habitat for Humanity in Jackson, Wyo.

The event recognizes community members and businesses who made an impact in the town. The “Rising Star” award honors an individual under the age of 40 who is “blazing the streets of Jackson with their innovation and service—both professionally and personally.”

In her award letter, a chamber review committee member wrote, “Kendra is the strongest, level-headed, positive leader I have ever met. She leads by example and continues to be an inspiration to her entire staff. She is wise and composed beyond her years. Habitat for Humanity went through a period of change and staff turnover all while starting the biggest project Habitat has ever taken on. Kendra is an incredible asset to the community.”
