Three positions on MKC's board of directors will be decided by a vote of the membership during MKC's annual meeting scheduled for Thursday, July 11, at 6 p.m., at the Sunflower Building located on the Kansas State Fairgrounds in Hutchinson. Cecil Wiebe is seeking re-election to District 1.
Cecil Wiebe and his son, Curtis, operate a diversified grain operation east of Newton. They also operate a grower and finishing cattle operation to make use of the crops they raise. Cecil and his wife, Jacque, have four married children who are all involved in farming. His primary MKC location is Burns and he feels he has benefited from the upgrades MKC has completed at this location.
Cecil previously served on the board of directors for Farmers Grain Cooperative and was president when it merged with MKC in 2002. He has previously served as secretary for MKC’s Board of Directors and on various committees. In addition, he has previously served on the board of directors for Team Marketing Alliance.
