2017 Rodeo Dedication

Mark Bacon

Mark was born and raised on a farm at Bavaria, Kansas. After graduating from Salina Central High School, he attended Kansas State University and graduated in 1977 with an Ag-Econ degree. He has a son, Alex, who now farms with his uncle, becoming the fourth generation to farm in western Saline County.

Mark has been employed with The Bennington State Bank for 17 years, working at the Bennington location as a Loan Officer and Senior Vice President. He joined the Bennington Lions Club in 2000 and has been actively involved with the Rodeo as well as other community activities.

“This being the 18th rodeo that I have been involved in, it’s amazing the amount of time and effort that all Bennington Lions Club members and other volunteers in the community are willing to provide in order for the Bennington PRCA Rodeo to be such a success, which allows the club to donate back to the community with financial support.”
