Congratulations to Circus Flora volunteer and former board president, Jeff Kuhn, who recently received the Community Star award! This award is given by Jeff’s employer, the global footwear company Caleres.  

Linda Meister, Caleres’ Manager of Learning, said, “At Caleres, it is a privilege to be able to give back to the community and to enrich the lives of the people who buy our products and welcome us into their lives.  As a company, we encourage and applaud our associates who give of themselves for causes about which they are passionate. Our Community Star Award recognizes Caleres associates who give back and inspire all of us to be our best selves.”

Jeff, the Vice President of Finance & Operations for Caleres’ Global Sourcing and Supply Chain organization, joined Circus Flora’s board of directors in 2016 and became president the following year. His dedication to keeping the magic of circus alive and accessible to all in St. Louis led to bold changes and a new, permanent home for Circus Flora’s Big Top on Washington Boulevard.

Additionally, a $250 donation was made to Circus Flora in Jeff’s honor. This donation is in support of our organization’s mission “to bring joy, delight and laughter to life through the magic of circus and community outreach.”  

Thank you, Caleres and Jeff, for your continued support of Circus Flora. We look forward to seeing you in the Big Top this June!
