City of Blue Springs Honors 2014 "Civic Leadership Award” winners

BLUE SPRINGS, Mo. – Mayor Carson Ross is proud to announce that the 2014 Missouri Municipal League Westgate Division’s recipients of the “Civic Leadership Award” are Blue Springs residents, Cindy Miller and Steve Greer.

The Civic Leadership Award celebrates the work of outstanding business and civic leaders and their contributions to the improvement of their communities. Mayor Carson Ross, past president of the Missouri Municipal League, describes Miller and Greer as “extraordinary residents that have enabled positive growth and community partnerships in Blue Springs.”

Miller and Greer were honored at the Missouri Municipal League’s Civic Leadership Awards Dinner on Thursday, July 17, 2014 at the Hilton Garden Inn in Independence, Missouri.

Cindy Miller and Steve Greer’s civic life has centered on leadership, volunteering and service with a focus on various civic groups, committees and boards in the Blue Springs community. Cindy has served as Executive Vice President at the America’s Community Bank the last fifteen years and on the bank’s board of directors. Steve has been in the construction industry for thirty-eight years and has owned his company for the past twenty-five years.

During that time, they have volunteered and served on various civic groups, committees and boards in the Blue Springs community. Cindy is currently serving on the City of Blue Springs Downtown Review Board. She was a long time board member and past President of Blue Springs Business Association, a member of the Blue Springs School District’s Business and Marketing Advisory Committee, a member of the Blue Springs Education Foundation’s W.E.E. (Women Endowing Education), a member of the Chamber of Commerce and a member of Rotary. Cindy and Steve help with the Mayor’s Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony, are graduates of the Citizen’s Police Academy and volunteers with the Police Department’s Volunteers (VIPS).

Cindy has been the President of Downtown Alive! since 2012, whose goal is to improve and create a vibrant downtown and return vitality to the heart of Blue Springs. Steve has been instrumental in the restoration of the interior of the Train Depot in Central Park and completed a major restoration project of the America’s Community Bank building in the downtown district.

Cindy and Steve have three children: Grant, Stevie and Sarah and one granddaughter Harlee. Steve and Cindy purchased a historic home in the downtown district, which will be a project they work on together for many years to come. When they aren’t volunteering, they enjoy traveling, riding their motorcycle and spending time with their family and friends.

“I am honored to recognize Cindy and Steve for their amazing commitment to this community,” said Mayor Ross. “It is with gratitude that I extend this honor for their dedication to Blue Springs and helping to make our City one of progress and promise.”
