Jensen Presented WeKan Award
Joy Jensen was presented with a We Kan! award November 25 in the Cake Batter Batter shop where friends and family gathered for the surprise recognition.
The presentation was made by Marci Penner and WenDee Rowe of the Kansas Sampler Foundation. The Inman-based non-profit has been choosing ten recipients a year since 1993 to show appreciation for dedicated work in helping preserve and sustain rural culture.
Jensen’s award had the words “Years of Good” engraved on a round plate made by Elk Falls Pottery. Foundation director Marci Penner said, “We met Joy in the early 1990s when she had a food concession at our first Kansas Sampler Festival on the farm near Inman. I’ve watched her community involvement since then and appreciate her so much. It’s people like Joy that keep rural communities moving forward.”
