Wanda Brown honored by medical center foundation

Wanda Brown, a longtime benefactor and friend of Missouri Press Association, received the Foundation Award June 1 from the Cass Medical Center Foundation during its annual Memorial Garden Celebration in Harrisonville.
Mrs. Brown is the widow of J.W. Brown Jr. They owned and published the Cass County Democrat-Missourian for years and were strong personal and financial supporters of their community and its endeavors. Mrs. Brown, who celebrated her 90th birthday anniversary June 16, continues that tradition.
The Foundation Award is presented annually to a person who has demonstrated steadfast dedication to the mission of Cass Medical Center and to improving the quality of health care in Cass County.
Mrs. Brown became affiliated with Cass Medical Center’s predecessor, Harrisonville Memorial Hospital, in 1955 when she began serving as a board member. She joined the Cass Medical Center Auxiliary in 1963 and has been a member ever since.
She was one of the first major donors to the Cass Medical Center Foundation and established the Wanda Brown Scholarship for the foundation in 1999.
In 2007 she made the first contribution to the capital campaign for the new hospital facility.
Mrs. Browns’ family held a birthday reception for her in Harrisonville on June 15. Dozens of family members, friends and citizens of the community attended.
