Over the past several years, Prairie Village resident Mark Stiles has spent countless hours volunteering to beautify the traffic islands in his neighborhood. His neighborhood spirit and devotion to beautification of Prairie Hills made him the next recipient of the Jim Gary Neighborhood Spirit Award for the Volunteer of the Year.

The Homes Association of Kansas City honored Stiles with the award at the organization’s annual dinner last month at the Milburn Country Club.
