Wendell Knehans, past president, noted Drennan continues to work tirelessly for agriculture.
“I have personally witnessed Dave at a booth at World Dairy Expo in Madison last October promoting Missouri as an destination for dairy re-locations; supporting beef industry at the Missouri Cattleman's Association meeting at Tan-Tar-A last week; and as a continuous participate and active contributor to St. Louis AgriBusiness Club."
Drennan expressed his gratitude for the selection and shared his appreciation for the club.
"I am overwhelmed at the honor of joining this select group, and am grateful to those who nominated me and the selection committee," Drennan continued, "I was encouraged as a staffer to participate in the club and have been fortunate to work with some great bosses, like Ken Bader, Jeff Gain, Steve Drake and Scott Shearer. I learned early on that membership isn't everything, but without it you have nothing."
