James Dull
Board Member
James Dull has been involved with the South Hutchinson Government since 1989 in various capacities and is currently the Superintendent. He has lived in the community for 45 years and raised his family here. The idea of a Veterans’ Memorial came from his travels throughout Kansas and seeing other City and County Memorials. Realizing that Reno County had no such similar memorial, James brought his idea to the attention of Matt Stiles, City Administrator for South Hutchinson. Together, they realized that the City had a perfect piece of property to create Reno County’s own Veterans’ memorial. The South Hutchinson City Council has been pro-active with a “Let’s Make It Happen,” campaign for the Memorial. James is very proud to be a part of this great project.
