For 32 years, the road from Kenny Bruhn’s Iowa home led to Goodwill Industries of Northeast Iowa, Inc. Bruhn, 53, of Janesville, Iowa worked for Goodwill beginning when he was 21 years old, most recently at the agency’s retail store in Cedar Falls.

“We were privileged to have Kenny work for Goodwill for 32 years,” said Goodwill Industries of Northeast Iowa. “Kenny contributed a great deal to the success of this organization.” Bruhn, who has cerebral palsy, recently retired from the agency.
