Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Wayne Vennard


Hello from the edge of the Santa Fe Trail. Andy Bean tracked me down. Didn't respond at first-thought he was a bill collector.

Fifty years in less than 200 words--here goes: After graduating from UNH and Boston University Law School I entered the USAF as a JAG captain in 1968. As part of the four-year tour I put in 90 minutes in Vietnam and one year in Korat, Thailand. Got out in 1972, married Nancy and briefly practiced law in Portsmouth.

In 1975 I accepted a position with the Comptroller of the Currency (national bank regulator) and we moved to Washington, D.C.
In 1983 we transferred to the OCC's Kansas City office.

After retiring in 1995 I became the Kansas Director of Taxation and subsequently served as a member of the Kansas Board of Tax Appeals.

Since retiring again in 2000, I have dabbled in real estate, community college teaching, community service and travel. I served on the Prairie Village city council for six years.

Nancy works for the 360 Architecture firm in KCMO and most recently was a member of the team that designed and monitored the building of the new Giants-Jets football stadium in the Meadowlands, New Jersey. Go Pats!

This web page was a great idea. Wayne
