Fund Established for Injured Kansas Corn Exec

Cindy Zimmerman

A farmer, friend and colleague of the agriculture and renewable fuels industries is in critical condition at a Springfield, Missouri hospital and a fund has now been set up to help his family with related expenses.

Kansas Corn and Sorghum Growers executive director Jere White was involved in a motorcycle accident on September 28 in northwest Arkansas. White is an avid motorcyclist and is pictured here at the 2011 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally with his son Robert, who is Director of Market Development for the Renewable Fuels Association.

White is also an avid ethanol supporter and has been interviewed for Domestic Fuel on several occasions, including at the Sturgis Rally where ethanol was promoted, and more recently when the first gallons of E15 were sold in Kansas.

White’s family has set up a Facebook page for Jere where updates can be found and comments of encouragement can be posted, and his colleagues with the Kansas grains groups are helping out with expenses for the family by setting up a fund for donations.

Donations to the fund can be sent to:
Jere White Fund
c/o Bank of Greeley
PO Box 80
Greeley, KS 66033

Cards for Jere and his family will be collected at the association office and may be mailed to:
