Ruble Recognized as Outstanding Professional in Iowa

Holly Ruble - Outstanding Professional award plaqueThe Iowa Urban Tree Council recognized Holly Ruble, environmental compliance and energy management specialist for the City of Cedar Rapids, with the Outstanding Professional in Iowa award. The award was presented at the Community Forestry Awards luncheon in West Des Moines on Wednesday.

The Outstanding Professional award honors those who model outstanding efforts to preserve, protect, expand and improve urban forest resources. Through her efforts, Ruble has helped secure funding for — and organized the planting of — more than 250 trees on City property since 2015.

“Holly Ruble is an exemplary member of our team,” said utilities director Steve Hershner.  “She has developed and championed a number of iGreenCR and sustainability initiatives from which the community has benefitted and we are grateful for her example.”

The City of Cedar Rapids recognizes the tremendous benefits that come with maintaining a healthy tree canopy. Forestry is one of the many tools in the City’s iGreenCR toolbox.
