State Honors Older Workers

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) A 95-year-old man who works at a Dodge City car dealership is among several older workers honored this week by the Kansas Department of Commerce.

Glenn Mauch, who was honored as the oldest worker, has worked for Dodge City’s Lopp Motors for more than 70 years. The Dodge City Globe reports that Mauch transports cars from dealership to dealership and prepares them for sale.

The 16th annual Older Worker and Employers Awards were presented Tuesday by the Kansas Department of Commerce. Six people, a business and seven organizations were recognized at the event. Honorees were selected from nominees that included workers age 55 and older, as well as businesses and companies that regularly employ older workers.
