2015 Kansas Cooperative Hall of Fame Inductees to be Honored During Special Ceremony
Join us on Wednesday, March 11, as we honor Charles "Charlie" Ross and Larry Scott, this year's inductees into the Kansas Cooperative Hall of Fame.
After the KFSA reception and dinner, we will recognize Mr. Ross posthumously for his visionary leadership in developing long-term power supply solutions for rural Kansas. Mr. Scott will be honored for advancing a cooperative culture where board training and parliamentary procedures were valued and the co-op was positioned for continued viability, now and in the future. Mr. Ross' nomination is sponsored by Kansas Electric Cooperatives, Inc., Topeka and Mr. Scott is sponsored by Pride Ag Resources, Dodge City.
The Kansas Cooperative Hall of Fame was established in 1999 to honor individuals in Kansas who have been instrumental in developing and spreading the cooperative philosophy. The Hall of Fame is important for recognizing the contributions of co-op pioneers and honoring those who have gone "above and beyond the call" in advancing the cooperative philosophy.
Both inductees' biographical information will be placed alongside other honorees in the Kansas Cooperative Hall of Fame showcase display at the Kansas State Fairgrounds. This permanent display, located in the Pride of Kansas Building, highlights the achievements of our state's great co-op leaders and preserves our cooperative history. It also plays a significant role in educating others about the uniqueness of the cooperative business model.
Showers expected Friday in the southeast U.S., southeastern Plains, northwestern Plains and into the central Prairies. Far northern areas may get some snow. Dry elsewhere. » More DTN Weather Commentary
