Congratulations to the United Way of the Plains for raising $15.6 million in its fall campaign. Some thought the campaign goal of $15.4 million was a stretch, given local layoffs and Boeing’s pullout of Wichita. But United Way officials and campaign chairman Scott Ernest, president and CEO of Cessna Aircraft, Co., had faith that this community would step up. They were correct. Thanks to the generosity of many, United Way will be able to help at least 37 different agencies serving in this community. Well done, everyone.
