Owens Earns Richard Tobin Award

Nebraska Agent Donates to Catholic School


COLUMBUS, NEBRASKA, APRIL 21, 2020 – Catholic Order of Foresters Agent Tyson Owens, of Columbus, Nebraska, earned a Richard Benevolence Tobin Award! He has chosen to donate the $500 associated with the award to St. Bonaventure Catholic School in Columbus. “I am grateful for the opportunity from Catholic Order of Foresters to be able to give back to my Catholic community,” Owens said. The donation will be used to further the education and faith of the children at the school. “St. Bonaventure School’s mission is to provide a well-rounded Catholic Christian education in an environment where all children will develop skills, habits, attitudes, knowledge and interests which will assist them in reaching their fullest potential and in becoming responsible, faith-filled Christian citizens,” Owens explained as to why he chose this organization.

Catholic Order of Foresters’ top 20 agents earned Richard Tobin Benevolence Awards, worth $500 each, based on production year 2019. COF donates the money to the church, school or community organization of each agent’s choice. These awards are made possible through COF’s Welfare and Relief Fund. The late High Chief Ranger Richard Tobin established this fund to allocate money for fraternal good.
