For more then 50 years, Wray McDermott has given his time and energy to the youth of Cass County as a parent, a leader, a board member and a volunteer.
In 1972 Wray joined the Cass County Fairboard. He served on the board for 15 years and held all of the offices, including President.
For over 30 years, Wray has served as the Foodstand Superintendent during the Cass County Fair. Each year he oversees a large volunteer force to operate the foodstand. All proceeds from the foodstand go back to the Fairboard to ensure that the Cass County Fair remains a free fair with free grandstand entertainment for everyone.
In 1986 Wray was elected as Treasurer of the Grounds Committee, a position he still holds. Most recently, Wray served on the committee that raised over $1 million dollars to construct a community center located on the Cass County Fairgrounds.
Wray and his wife Sharon live south of Atlantic. They have had 5 children go through the 4-H program in Cass County and now enjoy watching their grandchildren show.
