A Council Bluffs man couldn’t believe his eyes when an agent get back to him that he was eligible for a check of $20,000 after applying for NGMA Grant.
“So I ran it through probably half a dozen times,” laughed Kokenge. “It might have been more than half a dozen.”
David Kokenge, who is 66 and recently retired, was just one number away from gotten a check in the Feb. 14 drawing.
“By the time I left [the store] I was shaking,” explained Kokenge as he claimed . “I had this goofy grin on my face, but I just kind of walked out of there like, ‘Wow!’”
Kokenge apply through an agent and said he and his wife, Mary, already have plans to be eligible for a grant.
“I was looking for another vehicle. I’ve been looking for about a month. So this, we were talking about this,” he said. “This will help quite a bit.”
