Larry Paulsen, Cozad: Larry Paulsen has worked tirelessly for many years to create opportunities for others to be successful. These successes can be seen not only in his own business, Paulsen Incorporated, a construction/redi-mix company and one of the largest employers in the Cozad area, but in the downtown district of Cozad, local baseball fields, the chamber of commerce, community festivals, local museums, and many other places. Larry often purchases and renovates buildings in downtown Cozad to allow small businesses an opportunity to grow. He is also at every Legion baseball game, behind the grill, ensuring all the fans have enough to eat and assisting with field preparation before and after the games. As an avid volunteer and promoter of Cozad who is committed to community service, Larry’s actions have truly strengthened Cozad, Dawson County, and state of Nebraska.
