The Kansas Cowboy Hall of Fame says it will induct six people into the hall this year.
The honorees will be inducted into the Dodge City institution on Oct. 11.
The new members announced Wednesday are Dusty Anderson, of Skiddy, a working cowboy; Fredric Young, of Dodge City, a cowboy historian; Barry Ward, of Dodge City, a cowboy entertainer/artist; C.L. “Bud” Sankey, of Rose Hill, a rodeo cowboy; and Bob and Wayne Alexander, of Council Grove, cattlemen/ranchers.
Inductees are honored for making significant contributions to western heritage lifestyle and to the preservation of the cowboy culture in Kansas. They also must personify cowboy ideals of integrity, honesty and self-sufficiency, achieve statewide historic significance and be a Kansas native or resident.
