The Chamber’s volunteer of the year award honors C. Clyde Jones, a 60-year Manhattan resident who served as first dean of Kansas State University’s College of Business. Jones has a long-running record of community service activity in Manhattan, to include Shepherd’s Crossing.

 Crocker is the 34th recipient of the C. Clyde Jones Volunteer of the Year award. 
Matt Crocker is CEO of SPS Companies, Inc., the parent organization for the SPS family of companies which includes Steel and Pipe Supply Company as well as other metal-based companies.  Matt joined SPS in 2005, returning to Manhattan after leaving for several years following his time at Kansas State University.
Matt has served numerous roles at the Chamber including chair of the board in 2018. Additionally, Crocker has chaired the economic development committee and is currently leading efforts within the organization to address childcare and private sector support for community recreation programs.

Matt currently serves on the foundation boards of the Good Shephard Hospice House and Stormont Vail. He has served on several community boards including the Manhattan Area Chamber of Commerce, where he is a past board chair, the College of Business Graduate Studies Advisory Board, past Board President of the Boys and Girls Club of Manhattan, and others. 

Matt re-joined the GMCF board this past year to continue his work with organizations that enables others to pursue their passion in their community.
