Dylan Evans, Sarah Green and Kathy Brazle are the newest state fair board members.

Three new members have been appointed to serve on the board of the Kansas State Fair.

Gov. Laura Kelly appointed Dylan Evans, Sarah Green and Kathy Brazle to the Kansas State Fair board.

“The Kansas state fair is an important part of Kansas’ story,” Kelly says. “It’s a cherished annual tradition, and Kansans deserve board members who are passionate about our history and culture. Dylan, Sarah and Kathy encapsulate this passion.”

The board acts as the showcase of Kansas agriculture, commerce and industry, and is responsible for presenting a format of entertainment and education that appeals to people from all walks of life in Kansas.

The state fair emphasizes the importance of family, education, public and private entities, and Kansas as a whole.

Evans, Lebo, is the owner of Farmers State Bank of Aliceville and DWE Livestock. Evans received his master’s degree in food science, a bachelor’s degree in animal science and industry, and a bachelor’s degree in food science and industry, all from Kansas State University. He succeeds Steve Abrams.

Green, Wichita, currently serves as a writer, editor, and strategic consultant, working as an independent contractor. Previously, she served as local foods and rural outreach coordinator under the Kansas Department of Agriculture. Green participated in a graduate fellowship through George Washington University in food policy. She received her bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Kansas. She succeeds Matthew Lowen.

Brazle, Chanute, is a retired school administrator. Previously a teacher in Erie, Brazle received her bachelor’s degree in mathematics and physical education from Southwestern College and a master’s degree in physical education from the University of Kansas. Brazle also received an administration certification from Emporia State University. She succeeds Monica Lair.

The governor’s appointments to the state fair board are not subject to Senate confirmation.
