Phil Menke Announces Retirement with New Year

Phil Menke, REAP Southwest/Central Business Specialist, has announced his retirement from the Center for Rural Affairs effective December 31, 2005. Phil has served as southwest and central Nebraska REAP business specialist for the past eight years. Prior to that he served on the Center for Rural Affairs board of directors.

Known affectionately as the “staff philosopher,” Phil has been a passionate spokesman for rural small businesses and their importance to the state. In addition to his role with REAP, Phil has served on several Center committees and as a liaison between the staff and board.

Look for a longer article on Phil’s many contributions to REAP and the Center for Rural Affairs next time. Meanwhile, wish him well as he continues to serve rural Nebraska.
