The Governors’ Gold Awards are an annually held event benefiting Special Olympics Oregon, a unique organization serving Special Olympics’ athletes statewide since 1972.  The G.G.A. recognizes individuals, companies, organizations and communities that have contributed to the “greatness” of Oregon.  NAT was honored to sponsor a table and be in the company of Oregon’s visionary corporate community.  Dan Wieden, of Wieden+Kennedy, Ken & Joan Austin, co-founders of A-dec, Inc. and Jean M. Auel, international best-selling author of the Earth’s Children series, were three of the honorees recognized that night.  CEO Ken Barker and his wife Diane Barker, CMO Jay Nalbach and Director of Corporate Communications Ryan Leverenz were joined by James Mast, interim director of Drive Oregon, Shayne Kniss, president of Iris Capital Management and Rick Anguilla, principal of Guidance Counsel.  The real stars however, were the Special Olympic athletes themselves.  Their stories of gained self-confidence and their determination to experience joy, while developing physical fitness, were an inspiration to all in attendance.
