Local Entrepreneur Awarded $10,000.

Manhattan, KS – Allyn Weddle, owner of Weddle and Sons Roofing, was awarded the 2016 Kansas Katalyst recognizing his outstanding leadership, entrepreneurial ventures and active participation in his local community. Weddle was chosen from a sizeable group of talented and deserving nominees spanning the entire state of Kansas.

“I’m honored to have been chosen for the Kansas Katalyst Award,” Weddle said.

The Kansas Katalyst Award comes with a $10,000 cash prize donated to a charity of the winner’s choice. Weddle has chosen Relate 360 to receive the $10,000 award.

A nonprofit devoted to encouraging healthy teen relationships, Relate 360 partners with parents and schools in the Flint Hills region. The program educates, challenges and inspires middle school to college students in the areas of personal value and integrity in relationships.

“We offer our heartfelt thanks and congratulations to Allyn Weddle, and agree that he is an exceptional choice for this award from Kansas Katalyst,” Susanne Renberg, executive director of Relate 360, said.

“We are overwhelmed with gratitude that Allyn would choose Relate 360 to receive this gift. It comes at a very strategic time for our organization, and will be used to start an endowment with the Greater Manhattan Community Foundation, effectively giving to the work of Relate 360 for years to come! We are deeply grateful to both Kansas Katalyst and Allyn Weddle for great leadership and vision that so generously invests in this community and beyond.”
