Auctioneer Don Helberg has been an auctioneer for 44 years and last weekend his colleagues in Nebraska honored him for his work by naming him the Nebraska Auctioneer of the Year at their annual convention in Kearney.
Helberg told KNEB News working with the buyers and sellers on a auction is the most gratifying thing about being an auctioneer. He noted the advance of technology, at least for him, is the toughest challenge.
Helberg said he was surprised and humbled by the award. Don was awarded a commemorative plaque, Stetson hat and trophy belt buckle.
