Kevin Wagner, Director of Business Development at Ainsworth-Benning in Spearfish, has joined the Northern Black Hills Rotary Club.
While Mr. Wagner comes from East River, he is no stranger to the Black Hills, having spent over three years as Executive Director of Deadwood-Lead Economic Development. Mr. Wagner has always made time to serve the communities in which he’s lived. A sampling of organizations to which he has contributed includes Naja Shriners, Northern Hills Recreation Association, Deadwood Main Street Initiative, and the Spearfish Chamber of Commerce.
Ainsworth-Benning Construction, with offices in Spearfish, specializes in higher educational projects, healthcare, commercial/office, high-end residential, industrial and heavy highway endeavors. The company has a rich history of providing successful projects across western South Dakota with an exemplary record of completing projects on-time, within budget, and to the satisfaction of owners.
The Rotarians of the Northern Black Hills are currently fundraising to end polio in the world, to rehabilitate a primary school in Madagascar overwhelmed by COVID-19, and to aid local organizations such as the Kenadi Jean Weis Foundation, Good Shepherd Clinic, Artemis House, Sacred Mountain Retreat, and more. These causes are supported by the funds raised through a pipe-and-drape business supplying annual convention/trade shows and its annual Bingo, Brats, Beer and Polka event.
Rotary, the world’s first service club, has bridged cultures and connected continents to champion peace, fight illiteracy and poverty, promote clean water and sanitation, and combat disease for over 100 years. Rotary clubs throughout South Dakota additionally support various local youth and community projects.
