Posted: 19 August, 2013
WAYNE (KTCH/KCTY) - Governor Dave Heineman was the featured speaker Sunday afternoon as the Wayne Airport Authority dedicated the new terminal at the Wayne Municipal Airport and now Stan Morris Field.
Appropriately, the governor flew in for the occasion. He was also given the honor of making the surprise announcement that the new terminal will be called Nancy Braden Terminal, in honor of the long-time City of Wayne Finance Director and member of the Airport Authority. Nancy has been instrumental in securing federal funding to assist with this project. She was also recognized for 28 years of service to the Airport Authority Board. Others honored were Dave Ley for 38 years, Mitch Nissen for 34 years, and Carl Rump for 25 years. Wayne Mayor Ken Chamberlain was the master of ceremonies. Airport Authority Chairman Mitch Nissen handled the opening welcome and Father Mark Beran gave the invocation. State Senator Dave Bloomfield and Congressman Adrian Smith also spoke. Music was provided by the Wayne State College Band, directed by Dr. Dave Bohnert. Several hundred people were in attendance including members of the Northeast Nebraska American Legion Riders.
