Herington businessman to serve another four years

Gov. Kathleen Sebelius has announced the reappointment of Frank Meyer, of Herington, to the Kansas Wildlife and Parks Commission. Meyer recently completed a four-year term and will serve another four on the commission.

In originally appointing Meyer, Gov. Sebelius said, “We need Kansans with experience and appreciation for the opportunities and advantages of our public lands. Frank Meyer is well suited for this challenge. He led the effort to reorganize the Kansas Horseman’s Association and take over the Flint Hills Trail. He is a strong supporter of public lands, has a good business sense, and is willing to roll up his sleeves.”

Meyer is the chairman and CEO of Custom Metal Fabricators, Inc. In 1992, he was named the Kansas Small Business Person of the Year. In 1994, the Huck Boyd National Institute for Rural Development named him Kansas Leader of the Year. He has a special interest in Kansas lakes, streams, and rivers, as well as the state's wildlife. He is also an avid hiker and outdoorsman.
