Staff from the Steele County Detention Center were recently awarded lifesaving awards by Sheriff Lon Thiele for their efforts following a medical emergency with an inmate. Thiele presented the awards at the Steele County Board of Commissioners meeting Tuesday night to Sgt. Greg Huebbe, Cpl. Jesse Steneman, and nurse Leah Kent. Correctional Officer Matt Gwin was not present for the recognition, but is also a recipient of a lifesaving award in relation to the incident. (Annie Granlund/southernminn.com)
