Missouri University of Science and Technology’s public radio station KMST recently honored Suzanne Vaughan as Volunteer of the Year at the station’s annual membership picnic. Approximately 200 members attended the event at Lion’s Club Park on Sept. 30.
“Suzanne worked tirelessly with our program manager and production personnel, raising the bar with professionally produced underwriting spots,” said KMST Station Manager Wayne Bledsoe at the picnic, thanking Vaughan for her hours spent recording the spots and serving as guest host. “She is a great individual with a very professional radio voice. We will truly miss her.” Vaughan and husband Jay Goff, former Missouri S&T vice provost and dean of enrollment management, recently moved to the St. Louis area.
“Based on food, conversation and fun, this picnic was a great success,” says Joel Goodridge, marketing manager at KMST. “This venue allows our staff to personally thank members for all they do to make KMST the premium public radio station it is.”
This year’s picnic was sponsored by Fairground Auto Plaza of Rolla. Food was supplied by Swiss Meat and Sausage Company of Hermann, Mo., and Lee’s Chicken of Rolla. Beverages were supplied by Pepsi-Cola Bottling Co. of Rolla. Hi Striker of St. James, Mo., provided inflatables for the kids.
