The medallion, which honors those who "demonstrate outstanding service and dedication" through roles in civic and state government, was given to Olmer for a variety of reasons. Olmer speaks with students and civic groups on the importance of voting and also is a member on various statewide projects and committees, including the Vote Nebraska Initiative. Gale says Olmer is also a hands-on expert inside the courthouse. "Staff members say there is not a single aspect of the job that Diane doesn’t know and isn’t afraid to do herself, if the situation calls for it," says Gale. Olmer showed humility in accepting the award. “I really am humbled by the fact that this plaque was given to me in the presence of many of my peers who, I have to say, are just as deserving of this award as I am," says Olmer. Olmer received the medallion alongside Sherry Schweitzer of Seward County. Otoe County clerk Janene Bennett was also honored for having served over 20 years in office.
