Paul Kramp has served on the board for 22 years.

A current and a past veteran of ProAct’s Board of Directors were recognized with engraved awards recently denoting more than 20 years of service to the nonprofit.

Board member Paul Kramp was a carryover from the Interstate Rehabilitation Center board in Red Wing. IRC merged with Owobopte in Eagan in 2002 and became ProAct.

He served as the first chairman of a newly formed ProAct board, and was a key player in setting up and making the transition. “The results show that it was the right decision, to upgrade all of our facilities and obtain a better working environment for all of our clients,” said Kramp. “It gave them opportunities they probably wouldn’t have had if they had stayed separate.” Kramp is president of Alliance Bank in Red Wing.

Also recognized for more than 20 years of service was Larry Lehman, who retired from the ProAct Board in 2017.
