Gene Speichinger 1934 to 2009
Gene worked for the Missouri Department of Economic Development in community programs. One of Gene's many wonderful attributes was his willingness to keep going, even when clouds gathered. Gene had a knack for gathering people to do what seemed impossible. Whether it was on his farm, or in a community or neighborhood, Gene encouraged a "can do" attitude. At the end of the day, Gene also knew the importance of celebrating what was accomplished. Gene made sure that the MCB conference was a celebration of what people had accomplished together.
The Community of the Year Award is known as the Gene Speichinger Community of the Year Award after him and all he has done for MCB and Missouri.
