Far Reach Business of the Year

The Business of the Year Award recognizes the efforts of a Greater Cedar Valley Alliance & Chamber investor in promoting the quality of life and offering leadership within the Cedar Valley, achieving a major business accomplishment or making an outstanding contribution to the Cedar Valley community, economy and citizens

Edward J. Gallagher Jr. 2015 Legacy Award

The Legacy Award recognizes an individual for their continued leadership and noteworthy influence on the Cedar Valley through philanthropy and volunteerism. Ed Gallagher, Jr. is a lifelong supporter and promoter of Waterloo and the entire Cedar Valley. Ed and his late wife Cathy, together, have invested in buildings, programs, businesses, and people to make life better in the place we all call home. Most recently, he has been known as a tireless advocate for Waterloo’s riverfront redevelopment, a longtime leader carrying the message of our Grout Museum District and the driver of our Sullivan Brothers Iowa Veterans Museum. Perhaps the most visible symbol and testament to Ed’s commitment to the Cedar Valley is the award-winning Gallagher-Bluedorn Performing Arts Center, one of the top ten performing art centers on a college campus, located at the University of Northern Iowa. Ed and Cathy have personally changed the cultural landscape of the Cedar Valley, and in doing so, have given us a better quality of life and a more vibrant Cedar Valley economy. Theirs is a legacy that the Cedar Valley must celebrate.
