Two new members were recently appointed to serve three year terms on the Perkins County Health Services Foundation Board of Directors.

Appointed to represent District I of Perkins County is Lori Day of rural Madrid. She and her husband, Terry, farm and ranch south of Madrid. 

As co-owners of Day Land & Cattle Co., they are very involved with their family members.  Son Nicholas works with them on a daily basis. Other brothers, Josh and Jason, run the Josh Day Trucking & Custom Farming/Harvesting business. 

Day’s daughter, Ashley, is a graduate of Perkins County High School and North Platte Community College. Currently, she is a Bellevue University student and an employee of Hobby Lobby.

Day does much more than the farming and ranching. 

She has been president of the Elsie Altar Society, youth basketball organization, and Madrid Cemetery Board. Her most enjoyable activities center around family, sports, elderly care, and landscaping.

 egarding her board appointment, she comments, “The foundation is a new venture in my life and the rewards toward helping others is what it’s all about.”

The new board member representing District II is Kenny Wykert, Grant.


Also very active in family concerns, he and wife Patsy have two sons and a daughter.  Kolby and his wife Carrie have three children, Kraig and Jessica one child and Tara and husband Darin Tjaden one child. 

The family is active in healthcare concerns as Patsy is employed at the Colglazier Clinic, Jessica is director of the Grant Medical Clinic and Tara has a daycare in Grant.

Wykert has been active in the community as a school board member, Boy Scout leader, on the Methodist Church Board of Trustees, and a member of the Grant Rotary.

He feels strongly about the Health Services Foundation. “I feel that the foundation is very important for the future of our health care facilities. With money being tight, it’s good to have this organization to help with long range health goals,” said Wykert.

A third person, Brenda Kiolbasa, is not new to the board but was recently re-appointed for a three year term. She represents the PCHS Board to the Foundation Board.

Other members on the Foundation Board are (District I) Michele Cutler, Elsie;  (District II) Dan Wallin, Grant; and (District III) Roxie Lampmann, Grant, and Diana Maupin, Venango; (PCHS Board Representative) Bob Cummings of Grant; and (Member at Large) Nita McGreer, Grant.
