Ken Vogel, PE, was recognized by the Leadership Gainesville Alumni Association (LGAA) as its 2017 Member of the Year. Ken has been a member of LGAA since 2007 and in that time has actively supported with the planning and preparation of the organization’s annual 5K fundraiser event. His class started the LGAA 5K with the hope that each subsequent class would take the 5K over to support a charity of their choice. The race attracts elite runners, age group runners and children, so Ken takes pride in making sure the course is set up and marked properly.
“Over the past few years, each one of us performed a specific role in getting the race prepared and executed. Without each one of us doing our part, the race would not be as successful as it has been,” said Ken.
