Kenneth Wayne Ringer is a native of Rome, Georgia and is a graduate of Rome High School. He entered Auburn University and the College of Engineering in 1955, and was the sports editor of the Auburn Glomerata (annual) in 1957 when Auburn won the national championship in football. There, he met Joyce Reynolds, whom he married after graduating in 1959 with a degree in Industrial Management. He received an ROTC commission in the US Army and served for three years in Germany. Most of his business career was in sales. He joined 3M Company in 1968 as a sales representative and had a successful career with one of America’s great companies.

After retiring, he returned to the business world to join his friend, Jim Thompson, and his company, Thomco, as sales manager for three years. In 2003, the Ringers moved to Auburn, Alabama where they are enjoying retired life. The Ringers have three sons; Paul, John, and Patrick.
