Citizen of the Week

Wednesday, October 8, 2008

Vic Kennett is this week's COW. He was raised in Eureka and now owns Kerusso in Berryville. His nominator wrote, "The day after Hurricane Ike rolled through, Vic sent out a blanket e-mail titled 'I want to help Ike victims!' Last week he donated 12 pallets of apparel to Convoy of Hope, eight pallets will go to Haiti and four to Texas and more will follow. I don't think a lot of locals know about his giving. He sponsors local scholarships and supports local charities. A few years ago he developed a red wristband project that raised over $250,000 for Compassion International."
