Wayne Kies
 
(Star)
 

Unlike many of the contestants here tonight, Wayne Kies, is not a Hoosier boy instead he was born and raised in Sac City, Iowa.  Wayne attended Wayne State College, were he played football and was actively involved in numerous sports.

After college he returned to his home town where he began his career at Tyson Foods, in Storm Lake, Iowa.  After twenty years into his career, he made the wise decision to accept a promotion as Night Manager and relocate his family to Indiana.  Wayne is the current Complex Manager for the Tyson, Logansport plant.

Wayne married his high school sweet heart (Rachael) and has been married for 30 years this fall.  He has 3 children, Maddisen, Hannah and Ezra.

Wayne continues to be very interested in sports and has since become an avid "Purdue" fan.  Wayne can be found on his off time at one of the local golf courses where you'll find him working on his game which is bogey golf at best.

Wayne is an active Rotarian and is part of the LEDF Board; he enjoys meeting new people and is proud to be a part of this great community.

Even though Wayne was a participant in the 2011 Dancing with our Stars event he still says his dancing experience is limited to areas or places no one can see.....
