HALSTEAD, KS (April 4, 2017) Four of the original board members of the Halstead Community Foundation were recognized recently for their years of service to the foundation, as their terms have now expired. Beth Ann Kingsley, Von Kaufman, Larry Williams and Karen Koehn were all board members when the community foundation was first developed six years ago, by then-mayor Kevin Pyle.
Foundation Director Mary Kay Bean and Foundation Chairperson Ed Campbell presented these outgoing board members with engraved plaques commemorating their service Monday night during the Halstead Lion’s Club meeting.
“We would like to thank these founding board members for all the work they’ve done and the leadership they’ve provided to the community foundation,” Campbell said.
Dan Evans and Jalayna Carmichael will both join the board of directors, and the foundation is still seeking people to fill the two remaining vacant positions.
The Halstead Community Foundation, an affiliate of the Central Kansas Community Foundation, is an avenue to build funds supported by many donors to improve the quality of life for Halstead residents.
