Heidi Hill Drum, a South Lake Tahoe resident, received the award earlier this month at the 63rd annual community awards banquet.
"I was very surprised and I am grateful to be recognized, but I am just the messenger. Our dedicated board of directors and staff are just as deserving of the honor recognizing the importance of our work in the region," Heidi noted at the ceremony accepting the award, according to a press release.
The Tahoe Prosperity Center aims to strengthen regional prosperity. Some of the center's current projects include:

The Tahoe Prosperity Center is expanding high-speed internet and cell phone coverage in the region through a variety of collaborative projects. Every resident should have access to affordable broadband.
TPC is helping regional businesses find the workers they need, working with schools to provide training for that workforce, and ensuring residents have access to good jobs and the housing needed to live and work here in Tahoe.
MEASURING FOR PROSPERITY
The Measuring for Prosperity Report is the only compilation of economic and community demographic data for the Tahoe region. It ensures facts are used to make policy decisions in the region.
TPC is working with the University of Nevada, Reno, Seismological Laboratory (UNR) in a public-private partnership to ensure fire cameras are placed in strategic locations around the Lake Tahoe Basin. These cameras have a 24/7 view of the forests and ensure rapid detection and response to wildfires to protect our communities from fire.
