Honoring a legacy of service

On April 9, Silver Dollar City Foundation honored longtime board member Jack Herschend for his years of dedicated service and leadership on the Foundation’s board of directors. 


Recognizing Herschend’s deep passion for education and sharing the gospel, the foundation funded the purchase of 14 children and youth books in his honor. The collection includes “The Chosen, Volume 1: Called by Name” by Dallas Jenkins; “Daniel and the Very Hungry Lion” by Tim Thornborough; “Dust, Volume 1” by Kara Swanson; “KJV Essential Teen Study Bible;” “Children’s Bible Stories for Bedtime”; and many more. These books, each marked with a book plate recognizing Herschend’s tireless service to the community, are available to check out at Library Center of the Ozarks, in downtown Branson.
