Representative Bob Glanzer to be Posthumously Awarded Bob Duxbury Award at SD State Fair

 

HURON, S.D. – Representative Bob Glanzer will be posthumously awarded the Bob Duxbury Award during the 2021 South Dakota State Fair on Saturday, September 4, at 12 PM at the NorthWestern Energy Freedom Stage. Members of the Glanzer family will be there to accept the award.

 

The Bob Duxbury Award began in 2006 to annually honor a dedicated Friend of the Fair for service and dedication to the SD State Fair. The award is presented by the South Dakota State Fair and is administered by the South Dakota State Fair Commission.

 

Glanzer was a dedicated public servant in all areas of his life. He poured his time and effort into his community, his state, and most importantly his wife Penny and their family. Bob was an educator and football coach in Wessington Springs prior to becoming the South Dakota State Fair Manager in 1975. He also served in the state legislature from 2017 until his death in 2020.

 

His legacy lives on through his impact on several non-profit boards, his participation and support of many faith-based programs, and his lifelong involvement in rodeo, the State Fair, and the community of Huron. 

 

Bob Duxbury was the first recipient of the award. Since 2006, other recipients have included a former Secretary of Agriculture, long time fair employees and exhibitors, and a State Fair commissioner.

 

The 2021 South Dakota State Fair runs Thursday, September 2, through Monday, September 6. Channel Seeds preview night will be Wednesday, September 1.
