Rusty Dutton to Speak at Graduation

Published on May 5, 2022

Rusty Dutton has been in the construction industry for almost 25 years.  After graduating from Centralia High School in 1996, Dutton began honing his skills at State Technical College of Missouri.  In 1997, he graduated from the Heavy Equipment Operations program and started his career.  While working primarily in heavy highway construction, Dutton has worked in multiple capacities from the field to the office leading him to his current role as manager of Capital Hauling.

Dutton also serves on the Centralia R-6 Board of Education, Central Missouri Political Action Committee for the Builders’ Association, Emerging Leaders Committee for the Missouri Asphalt Pavement Association and is a Kiwanis member.  Most importantly Dutton is a husband and father.

Dutton and his wife, Jessica, have been married for 21 fantastic years.  They are parents to Tanner, a junior in high school, and Raleigh, a seventh grader.  Dutton and his family reside on their farm in Audrain County and are members of Parkview Christian Church.

Outside of work and other commitments you will likely find Dutton at his children’s sporting events or working to improve his farm.  Unless it is turkey or deer season, then he is hunting.  Dutton also enjoys spending time with his two Labrador Retrievers, Willie and Waylon, who love riding shotgun in the ranger.
