Des Moines Area Community College has presented Ambassador Kenneth Quinn, president of the World Food Prize, with the DMACC President’s Medal of Honor. DMACC President Rob Denson presented the award to Quinn during the 13th Annual DMACC World Food Prize Gourmet Dinner held Oct. 18 at the Iowa Culinary Institute on DMACC’s Ankeny campus. During the event, Denson also announced the creation of the Kenneth M. and Le Son Quinn International Lecture at DMACC, named after Ambassador Quinn and his wife. The couple will return to DMACC for a gourmet dinner each year and talk about international issues of their choice. Quinn, who grew up in Dubuque, joined the World Food Prize in 1999 following his retirement from the State Department after a 32-year career in the U.S. Foreign Service.
