Selner Named New Director of National Dairy Shrine
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 04/02/2008
A long-time professional involved with Wisconsin's dairy industry will become the next executive director of the National Dairy Shrine. Dr. Dave Selner of Shawano was chosen to succeed Maurice Core as
the leader of the 59-year-old organization. Based in Ohio, the NDS is dedicated to preserving dairy history, promoting the dairy industry, and developing future dairy leaders. Selner will begin his role as
director in August.
"National Dairy Shrine is fortunate to secure the talented Dr. Selner as its next Executive Director," says NDS President Linda Hodorf. "We are confident that his extensive dairy industry experience combined
with his spirit of community service will help NDS further expand its contributions to the dairy industry."
Dave served six years on the NDS board of directors. In 2002, he stepped up to the plate and served as the 53rd president of the organization. At the time, the organization set plans in motion to renovate the
Visitor's Center and to update all its presentations at the Fort Atkinson based facility. Selner also initiated the fundraising campaign and developed the fundraising brochures for the campaign.
"I am greatly honored to step into the role of the executive director for National Dairy Shrine," Selner said. "I have big shoes to fill. National Dairy Shrine has been blessed with great executive directors from
Joe Eves, 'Mr. Dairy Shrine' to Maurice Core. I promise to do my best to live up to the standard they have set for me."
The next step for organization's executive committee will be selecting a new location for the organization's administrative offices since Selner calls Wisconsin home.
