- Maurer School of Law Distinguished Service Award (2009)
Fred J. Logan, Jr. has been lauded for his seemingly unlimited civic commitment, his integrity, and his selfless work for the betterment of his community. Logan has lived and practiced in Johnson County, Kan., since his graduation from the Law School in 1977. He started a law firm there with his brother, Scott, and became involved in state and local politics. In 1987, Logan became state chairman of the Kansas Republican Party, making him – at that time – the youngest state leader of either major party in the United States. In his home county, Logan has filled leadership roles in a number of service organizations including St. Luke’s South Hospital, the Arts Council of Metropolitan Kansas City, and United Community Services. His true passion is education, and in 2008, Logan chaired the Committee for the Johnson County Education and Research Triangle. He has actively championed causes for students from kindergarten through college and has received numerous awards recognizing his efforts. In 2008, Logan was named the Johnson Countian of the Year for his distinguished civic leadership.
