The Petry name is well known for being instrumental in the success of the National Western Stock Show today.
The late Nick Petry served as president and CEO of the National Western Stock Show from 1966 to 1985. The new Legacy Boardroom is named in his honor, and the boardroom table will now be known as the Nancy Petry Boardroom Table. It will be as grand, elegant, and impressive as she was. It seemed appropriate that their names, stories, and love continue to be intertwined and at the heart of the Stock Show.
Annie Harrington Weinig, Nancy’s granddaughter wrote: “In a world that changed so much over the course of her lifetime, my grandmother was absolutely committed to supporting institutions and organizations like the National Western that will outlive us all and whose continued existence will remind future generations of the vision and core values upon which our state and western region were built.”
We offer our thanks to the late Nancy Petry, and we thank her family for their continued support of the organization that has meant so much to them.
