The MacManus Award is presented to those individuals who show extraordinary leadership in public affairs, industry relations and community relations. Mr. Donald H. MacManus, for whom this Award is named, exhibited all of these traits. He joined the U.S. Army and served his country in Korea, and then later served the grocery industry for many years as executive director of the Rocky Mountain Food Dealers Association. In 1968, he was elected to the State Senate, where he served the citizens of Colorado for 16 years. Mr. MacManus was a long-time member of the Senate Judiciary Committee and rose to the position of assistant Senate Minority Leader. In 1989, while again serving the grocery industry as director of western operations for the Food Marketing Institute, Mr. MacManus lost his courageous battle to cancer.
