Dan Meers, aka K.C. Wolf, had a little bit of fun off the football field last month while visiting Scott City and Leoti in January.
The Kansas City Chiefs hall of fame mascot travels the world sharing his story of tragedy and perseverance while, in general, just having a lot of fun. Wild and rowdy K.C. surprised students at each Scott City and Leoti school during a two-day visit. Each evening, the more subdued Mr. Meers took off the costume and shared with the communities an inspirational message of life and leadership. Students and attendees had the opportunity to pose with K.C. and Dan for photos and autographs.
Dan Meers is the first presenter as part of the Cooperative Lecture Series, a new collaboration between Wheatland Electric Cooperative, Inc. and Scott Cooperative Association. The series is the brainchild of Jason Baker, CEO of Scott Coop.
“I attend these seminars and hear amazing speakers that get me excited to return to work with renewed passion and I just wanted to bring some of that enjoyment and inspiration to our local communities as well,” says Baker. He hopes to bring a new speaker or presentation to the community on an annual basis.
“When Scott Coop approached us about this series, we knew it was something that we wanted to be a part of,” says Alli Conine, director of member services and corporate communications at Wheatland Electric. “This is what Wheatland is all about – investing in our communities and bringing initiatives that will resonate with our members.”
Scott Coop is a Wheatland member serving Scott and Wichita counties.
