Concord Mediation Center’s 5th Annual Pathways Award Luncheon

Friday, June 23, 2017

11:15 a.m. – 1 p.m.

Field Club of Omaha, 3615 Woolworth Avenue

 

This year, our 2017 Pathways Award honoree is Gene Klein, Executive Director of Project Harmony, who has made it his mission to work with young people who are hurting. Klein has guided Project Harmony to become a national model in responding to child maltreatment. Also at this luncheon, we will present the Ron Volkmer Practitioner Award to Grant Story, retired minister, mediator and therapist, who spent his career as an advocate for others.

 

Klein was selected to receive this honor, as he demonstrates the qualities of the Pathways Award: Honoring those who have courageously opened their minds and hearts to processes of conflict resolution involving healing, forgiveness, empathy, open communications and/or the ability to bring disparate communities together for the better of all. Project Harmony is responsible for the collaboration of child abuse investigations by providing forensic interviews and medical examinations. The collaborative effort is designed to reduce the anxiety for children reporting their experiences. Klein is a licensed mental health practitioner, a certified master social worker and a program leader in our community. He continues to keep Project Harmony and its mission at the forefront in our area.

 

As one of the founding Board members for Concord Mediation Center and a long-time mediator, Story developed the parenting classes used by both Concord Mediation Center and Douglas County Conciliation Court. These classes help prepare parents to create a parenting plan with their former partner, and teach skills to help their children through a difficult time. Story served as executive director, therapist and mediator for The Samaritan Counseling Center, in addition to serving as a United Methodist pastor and a chaplain for Nebraska Methodist Hospital and Health System. The Ron Volkmer Award, named for Creighton University Professor of Law Emeritus and long-time Concord Mediation Center board member Ron Volkmer, honors practitioners who apply the agency’s mission to their professional or volunteer conflict resolution efforts.
