New Mr. Hutchinson and Woman of the Year 16 Jun 12

Among the talent and beauty that was seen at the 2012 Miss Hutchinson pageant last night, a new Woman of the Year and Mr. Hutchinson were named.

The 2012 Woman of the Year is Mary Henke, who serves as the Head Librarian at Hutchinson’s Library. Second Mate Tam Gehlen described her as a pillar in our community who goes above and beyond, leads by example, and has a passion for what she does.

The honors of the 2012 Mr. Hutchinson went to Roger K. Olson, who has been a member and leader of several community organizations, including the Elks, the VFW, the American Legion, and Christ the King Lutheran Church. Vice Commodore Josh Gehlen said that Olson is “A friend of schools, a friend of veterans, a friend of agriculture. In short, he’s a friend of Hutchinson.”

Both will be riding the Water Carnival’s Grande Day Parade on Sunday.

    This certainly is a well deserved honor for these dedicated Hutchinson citizens. Congrats to both Mary and Roger!
