South Kansas Regional Director Barry Allen was recently recognized as the Regional Director of the Year for the South Central Region of DU Inc., which includes the states of Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, and New Mexico. The award was presented by David Schuessler, Director of Fundraising and Volunteer Relations for the South Central Region at a regional DU staff meeting in Arkansas.
“Barry’s region experienced significant growth this past year”, exclaimed Schuessler. “From new chapters to growth inside existing committees, all of Kansas worked extremely hard to grow revenues dedicated to DU’s conservation work. Our organization faces a challenge every year to raise additional funds for conservation as the cost to perform our vital waterfowl habitat work grows. Both Barry and his volunteers excelled in managing and growing their programs to exceptional levels.”
