10/14/2019 Amb. Kenneth Quinn
In October 2019, John Ruan III, Chairman of the World Food Prize Foundation, unveiled a surprise for Ambassador Quinn. He unveiled a portrait that had been commissioned to Rose Frantzen of Makoqueta to create a portrait of Ambassador Quinn. At that same event, the Iowa Gallery in the Hall of Laureates was renamed in the Ambassador's honor, it is now known as the "Ambassador Kenneth Quinn Iowa Gallery." The Ambassador's wife Le Son and two of his children, Kelly and Shandon, and his two sisters, Pat and Kathy, were present for the unveiling. Vice President Mashal Husain, who coordinated the entire surprise project, was also there to offer congratulations.
