Answers in Genesis’ Cofounder Wins 2018 Community Service Award

Featured in Ken Ham Blog

We’re excited to announce that Answers in Genesis’ cofounder and CAO Mike Zovath was awarded the 2018 Community Service Award for Grant County (the county the Ark Encounter is located in) last night at the annual Grant County Chamber of Commerce banquet. He was nominated by the mayor of Williamstown, Kentucky (where the Ark is located), Rick Skinner, for this major civic award.

I had the honor of introducing the winner of the award, and Mike had no idea he had won until Mayor Skinner and I announced it from the front. His three children and several grandchildren were in attendance to see him receive the award.

Ken speaking

This award was given to honor the Ark Encounter and the impact it is having economically in Grant County. The award is typically given to a person who helps lead such an effort, so Mike won the award—he has largely been in charge of bringing the vision for the Ark to life and overseeing its on-going expansion. We’re so thankful for the hard work Mike does and are excited to see him honored with this prestigious award.
