services to Nebraska, on a national level he has played a key role in
helping to create some of the most advance communications
policies in the country.”
In its fourth year, the award was created to honor the memory of Ray

the NARUC Staff Subcommittee on Telecommunications who best

award. While I never had the pleasure of meeting Ray, his legacy is
still very much felt throughout NARUC’s policies and processes.”
