Hometown Hero: Wayne Dasher

Posted: Updated:

Glennville has very few good causes that don't get help, directly or indirectly, from Wayne Dasher. He's an active member of several church and civic organizations. In addition, he helps plan the annual Glennville Sweet Onion Festival.

"Wayne does all these things, not for any money or advancement or recognition, but out of the goodness of his heart," noted Mayor Chris Roessler.

He helped found an appreciation cook out for law enforcement that draws close to 2,000 people each year. Dasher knows many of those officers through his service on the Georgia Public Safety Board and the state Corrections Board.

"Wayne Dasher is one of those unique individuals who's willing to serve the people of this state," said Georgia governor Nathan Deal.

In addition, he serves on the local development authority and helps host an annual luncheon for the volunteers of the onion festival.

"I guess it just comes naturally to me to want to do things for the community," Dasher stated. "There's just a good feeling knowing that you're helping make someone else's life better."
