  • Dustin R. Gaines, of Andover, was inaugurated as the president of the Medical Society of Sedgwick County Alliance on May 12.
    Gaines accepted the position at a luncheon in his honor held at a private hangar at Stearman Field Airport in Benton.
    He expressed humble gratitude and was honored to accept the position. He advised those attending when he is on the job site for his real estate company, the roofers call him “Boss.” but when he sticks around the site, he picks up shingles and tosses them in the dumpster or gets out of their way.
    “In other words, there is no job beneath me,” he said. “We must all pull together to achieve success.”
    Gaines also advised the best part of that day was arriving home to his beautiful doctor wife and seeing a blackberry crisp on the stove and hearing her say, “Congratulations Babe, or shall I call you Mr. President?”
    Gaines is married to Dr. Melissa Gaines, associate professor of internal medicine, and is the son of Norma Peterson or Riverton and the son-in-law of Ron and Deanna Warner of Galena.
