B.U.C.K.: Benefiting Unsatisfied Consumers of Kansas

Team Members:
John Dolezal, Bonnie Duden, Amy Litzenberger, Amy Pfannenstiel

Mission Statement:
Our formal group will come together as both citizens and officials of Western Kansas to research existing shopping and dining needs of this area. We will compare our current mall facility to area needs, and to the facilities in larger cities where consumers are currently traveling to patronize. We will then build the “Frontier Emporium” in Hays, KS in order to provide a location for housing new businesses and services. With this idea, we will attempt to keep revenues from Northwest Kansas in Northwest Kansas.

Team Members:
Renae Brungardt, Travis Brunner, Shelby Hayden, Mike Schwanke, Jerome Siercks, Carole Vrbas

The C.O.P.I.L.O.T. task force will identify the problems associated with the Hays Municipal Airport. Then it will improve and transform the Hays Municipal Airport into the Hays Regional Airport Center by establishing Denver, Colorado as a second destination, by bringing a hotel and at least two restaurants to the airport center. It also wishes to increase the number of airline passengers who depart from and arrive at this airport through the use of advertising and a shuttle bus service. Finally, the C.O.P.I.L.O.T. task force wishes to effectively serve the needs of the residents of northwest Kansas and it wishes to help the Hays Regional Airport reach its fullest potential by becoming “The Hub of Northwest Kansas.”
