Brooke Rabon has been a passionate advocate for The Robert D. and Billie Ray Center since she began as an intern at KDSM FOX 17 in 2001. In 2006, KDSM Fox 17 began creating Iowa Character Award recipient videos. These videos are played each year at the annual banquet to give Iowans a glimpse into the lives of our award recipients and their demonstration of good character. Since the videos began over 12 years ago, Brooke has and continues to be the lead on this special project.
Leading a team from KDSM Fox 17 each year, Brooke spends countless hours traveling the state of Iowa to capture the stories of individuals, organizations, schools, and educators on camera. Recipients are always greeted with a warm smile and friendly conversation as Brooke is an exceptional example of good character and professionalism.
Over her many years working with The Robert D. and Billie Ray Center, Brooke has captured 145 Iowa Character Award recipients on video. Her dedication and commitment to sharing the stories of Iowans making positive impacts on others has made a significant impact on our work.
Congratulations to Brooke Rabon, the 2016 Character Champion!
