The Sonny and Sophia Zetmeir Designated Fund

In 2008 Sonny and Sophia Zetmeir established a  fund that would benefit both Labette Community College and the Parsons Area Community Foundation. Over time, the Zetmeirs made contributions to the fund designating the principal to be granted to the college once construction was begun for a new Labette Community College Health Science Building. In the meantime, the interest earned from the fund would be distributed to the Parsons Area Community Foundation. In 2013 the fund was closed with the principal granted to the college, and the community foundation receiving the balance.
