Glenn Hilgedick
2019 Business Person of the Year

Glenn Hilgedick

Fayette’s 2019 Rotary Business Leader of the Year, Glenn Hilgedick (left) with Jim Steele. Jim made the presentation on Thursday evening, April 25, 2019. Jim's words are printed below.
Glenn was honored along with two others pictured at the bottom of this page.

Our 2019 Fayette Rotary Business Leader of the Year is a life-long member of this community and — along with many others in his family — is known here and beyond for dedication to service and ethical business dealings. In point of fact, his father was one of our earliest recipients of this recognition back in 1990. Currently our 2019 recipient serves as president and crew foreman of his family business and through his efforts —and joined with the work of his colleagues — his company has been long recognized for quality work and outstanding, efficient customer service. Our awardee began work for the business back in the mid-1960s while in junior high school and continues working there to this day. Graduating from Fayette High School in 1970, he continued his education at Central Missouri State University in Warrensburg, earning an associate degree in construction technology in 1972. Over the years, he has continued expanding his expertise by taking a number of hours of advanced training, developing skills in HVAC, electronics, sheet-metal work, and welding. However, his efforts have not been confined to only business. He has been active in the community as a lifetime member of the Fayette Optimist Club, having served two times as president. He also is a lifetime member of the Fayette First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), and was a member of the former Fayette Archery Club. Our recipient also is an avid hunter and fisherman, in addition to participating in team sorting. Most recently he has been working to develop his skills as a knife-maker. And perhaps most importantly he is a dedicated family man, having been married to Patricia for 45 years. They have two twin sons, Mike and Nick, and five grandchildren. By now you’ve probably all figured out the name of our honoree. Would you please join me in welcoming and applauding Fayette Rotary’s 2019 Business Leader of the Year, Glenn Hilgedick.
