Echo Menges, Editor of The Edina Sentinel, lives in Edina with her husband Stanley. She has been with the Sentinel since 2010. Also, Menges cohosts a weekly podcast called “The Ken and Echo Show” with Ken Mitchell. Menges was the first to be approached to have a pie in the face. She quickly agreed, saying, “That’s genius! I bet there are a lot of people willing to pay good money to put a pie in my face!” She loves apple pie.
Evan Glasgow of Edina is the Knox County Presiding Commiss-ioner and has held that position for six years. Surely he has enticed someone to want to throw a pie in his face! Evan is married to Miranda (James), and they have two children and “one on the way”. His daughter, Hallie is 6, and daughter Alexis is 2. The new addition is expected in September. His parents are Julie (Bishop) Smith and Mike Glasgow, both of Edina. Evan attends Relay most years, and has lost three grandparents to cancer. Evan is hoping for a chocolate pie.

Grace is 15, Jacob is 13, and Abigail is 11. They attend Knox County Schools. Sheriff Becker will gladly take a pie in the face for a good cause. Sheriff Becker loves cherry pie.
Keith Gudehus was raised in Knox County, and he is currently a math teacher at Knox County High School. He has a Master’s Degree in Accounting. Mr. Gudehus has been the Girls Basketball Coach. He served 21 years of active duty in the Army retiring in 2011. Back in Knox County, Keith and his wife Jackie have raised four daughters. They range in age from 25 to 17.

Brock Meeks (photo not available) of Memphis, MO, is an auctioneer and will serve as auctioneer for the “Pie in the Face Auction”. He will auction off the above four individuals and then himself. After he gets done “ribbing” the above pie victims, surely one of them will be ready to get even with him. Brock’s favorite pie is banana cream.
The Pie in the Face Auction will be held on on June 9 at the Knox County Relay for Life!
