SCOTTSVILLE, Ky. (WBKO) - His charitable work with the Center for Courageous Kids was recognized Thursday with one of the highest public service awards anyone could get.

The Kentucky National Guard made a grand entrance to present Colonel Roger Murtie with the Commander's Award for Public Service. It's the fourth highest public service award given to a private citizen. Murtie says the work by CCK continues to pay off, with a new milestone reached this year.

"We have been open a little over 5 years and over 14,000 children and family members from 39 states, 3 countries, have come here to Scottsville to enjoy a week or a weekend with wonderful first class medical care," says Murtie.

CCK has already started its summer camp program. Thursday marked the final day for the first week of campers. More children and their families will visit the camp in the next 8 weeks.
