Wade West will be inducted as a new member in our club at today's meeting. He is sponsored by Sharon West (yes, he is a distant relative) and his Classification is: Financial Advisor.
Wade's bio... 
I’m a Financial Advisor with Edward Jones.  In 2019 I had an opportunity to move my branch from East Wichita to Auburn Hills at 135th and Maple in West Wichita.    I grew up in the small farm community of Marysville, KS and after high school, went on to receive my bachelor's degree from Wichita State University.
My wife, Whitney (graduate of Kansas State University), and I were married in 2006 and have been blessed with three wonderful wild and crazy children: Cooper (9), Hannah (7) and Madeline (2 months). Our kids keep us very busy with their many activities such as soccer, softball, Boy Scouts and dance along with doing a lot of Honey-do projects around the house. Whitney is a preschool teacher at East Heights United Methodist Church.
