Kentucky REALTORS® recognize Rep. Adam Koenig with its highest legislative award
February 13, 2019

Kentucky REALTORS® has awarded the Jess and Carolyn Kinman Award to Representative Adam Koenig. The award was presented in the Capitol Rotunda for his efforts as Co-Chair of the House Licensing and Occupations Committee and his involvement with House Bills 2, 329 & 465 from the 2018 General Assembly.

 
“My experience as a REALTOR® gives me a unique perspective on the challenges this important industry faces year after year,” said Representative Koenig. “I am proud to help write and pass legislation that removes barriers to the men and women of Kentucky that are working to help our citizens realize the American dream of homeownership.” 


As part of the award, First Federal Savings Bank of Frankfort makes a charitable donation in the name of the award recipient. This year, Rep. Koenig selected the Salvation Army of Covington. 


The award is named in honor of Jess Kinman, a former Kentucky REALTORS® president and REALTOR® of the Year who passed away in 2007, and his wife Carolyn Kinman, who worked for many years at the Legislative Research Commission and General Assembly. 


The Kinman Award is presented to an outstanding Kentuckian whose involvement in the legislative and political arenas have left an indelible mark on all those who have known or worked with him or her.
