Age: 36

Education: Washburn University, BA, MBA, CPA

Hometown: Overland Park, KS

Spouse: Crystal Reuter

Children: Tucker (5) and Hudson (3)

Best Advice Ever Received:

“Never give up and keep working hard to accomplish a goal.” Advice from my mom.

Biggest Fear:

Losing someone important to me in my life.

Accomplishment Most Proud Of:

Becoming a Reserve Police Officer and taking a leadership role in the unit. I work hard to be a leader at Westar and the police department so that my boys see a positive role model.

Role Model:

I don't have just one role model. From a young age I learned that everyone has good and bad qualities to them. I don't like to just pick one person and say that is my role model. Growing up my father wasn't around much and I felt the need for a father figure in my life. Today my father-in-law plays an important role in my life as a positive role model.

Favorite Thing About Humanity:

My favorite thing about humanity is that we are all different and we all have different life experiences, which make us all unique.

WOW Factor:

  • Topeka Police Reserve means Buck is a VOLUNTEER police officer – he works as a Topeka Police Officer for FREE!

  • Washburn University football team captain and MVP.

  • Compete in a Topeka Tinman Triathlon.

  • Responsible for collection of over $250,000,000 annually.

“Mr. Reuter has demonstrated his leadership, loyalty and sense of civic responsibilities as long as I have known him. He balances his family, work and volunteerism at the TPD in a way that few have the ability to do. In the end, the Citizens of Topeka benefit from this high-level commitment.”
