Former Whitesburg resident Ben Kincer was profiled recently in an article in the Fairfield Echo newspaper.
Kincer, who is the manager of the Wal-Mart Supercenter at Fairfield Township in Hamilton, Ohio, began working for Wal- Mart in Whitesburg in 1988. He coordinates the donation of about $30,000 a year from Wal-Mart toward fire and police departments, churches and community organizations.
The newspaper article said the community-related activities in which Kincer is involved include serving on The Greater Hamilton Chamber of Commerce’s fellowship committee and the township’s board of zoning appeals, as well as volunteering 12 hours each month for the Shriners of North America. He also drums for the Syrian Shrine Oriental Band, a 48-member group that plays at local parades and competitions.
