Dogman of Wabash County shares 45 years of dogs changing lives
by Kalie Ammons email@example.com While the Dogman of Wabash may sound a bit like an evil creature from a horror film, students in Dog Club and obedience training feel he is more of a superhero. “Gary has a gift that I’ve never seen in anyone else before as far as all the different temperaments of dogs, being able to read the dogs and know what works best to accomplish what you’re trying to accomplish,” said Erin Hickman-Cohee, six year 4-H Dog Club veteran. Gary Henderson has been training dogs with 4-H since 1969. Henderson currently uses his talents to teach an adult obedience course.
As with anything worthwhile, successful members explain it takes more than two hours a week to perfectly train a dog. “It is a full time thing; I ended up not doing any other 4-H projects because it was such a full time thing,” HickmanCohee said. “It was very, very rewarding and it builds an experience with your animal that you don’t really have otherwise. It’s definitely worthwhile.” With the help of Henderson, HickmanCohee was able to take her Bichon Frisés to the State Fair and win first place out of 135 her very first year. “I saw some of the most aggressive dogs I have ever seen and Gary was able (continued on page 7)
Basketball legend Clyde Lovellette visits Wabash County Historical Museum
by Emily Armentrout firstname.lastname@example.org History Hunters holds monthly events hosted by the Wabash County Historical Museum, which allow people to come in and enjoy presentations on history by people who were actually a part of it. For the month of January, basketball legend Clyde Lovellette visited the History Hunters. Lovellette recounted events from his past about playing high school basketball in Indiana, fulfilling a prophecy at Kansas University, winning gold at the 1952 Helsinki Olympics, success in the NBA and reaching kids here in Wabash County while working at White’s Family and Residential Services. Lovellette entered the Wabash County Historical Museum the morning of his presentation, towering over everyone in attendance, standing 6 foot 9 inches tall. One can only imagine what it would be like facing a man with a presence like that on the basketball court, but Lovellette had a smile that let you know he was happy to share his story with the audience. Lovellette began reminiscing about high school. As a freshman, he stood 6 foot 4, which was unusual back then, according to Lovellette. “I don’t think there was a kid 6 foot when I was in high school,” Lovellette told The Paper. With that type of size difference, Lovellette was an awkward teen. Basketball did not come naturally, even with his height. “In eighth grade, I wasn’t very good, and my freshman year wasn’t good, but I worked all summer long. I was clumsy. Coach had me 1952 OLMPYIC GOLD MEDALIST and NBA legend jumping rope and danc- Clyde Lovellette shows off his gold medal while visiting the ing, which I never liked Wabash County Historical Museum for a History Hunters (continued on page 2) presentation.

Area fire departments battle fire and ice Saturday
FIRE FIGHTERS FROM NOBLE, ROANN, PLEASANT AND WABASH CITY FIRE DEPARTMENTS battled blazing fire and blisteringly cold weather Saturday morning as they fought to extinguish a house fire at 5559 W 100 S. A 911 call was made at 8:18 a.m. White-out conditions made getting to the fire dangerous and challenging as the relentless winds fanned the flames. Little, if anything was salvaged from the house.

Basketball legend Clyde Lovellette... continued from front page to do. Anything to get you more agile, on your toes, more like a boxer rather than flatfooted. So my sophomore year was pretty decent,” continued Lovellette.
Junior year was when Lovellette had finally come into his own on the court. He led his basketball team to the state championship, only to lose out to
Shelbyville. His size and ability on the court made waves in the college basketball-scouting universe, and being from Indiana, Indiana University seemed
SPECIAL PRICE! three great
like the choice college for Lovellette. Kansas University Coach Phog Allen had a different plan though. Allen attempted to contact Lovellette multiple times before Lovellette finally gave in and visited the university. “He gave up a speech in St. Louis to come to me. I was all set to go to IU. I avoided him so much,” said Lovellette. At one point, he even attempted to convince his parents to lie to Allen when he made a visit to their home. “Dad and Mom, they wouldn’t lie for me. I went out there and he shared the prophecy… I went out
there and met the guys. They were down to earth, the town was beautiful, and I decided to go there.” The prophecy Allen shared was that if Lovellette joined the team, they would win a NCAA championship and go to the Olympics and win a gold medal, but that story will come a little later. Lovellette was ineligible to play basketball as a freshman at KU, but he stuck around Lawrence, Kan. the entire year to work on his skills with his teammates. One skill that seemed to come naturally was his hook shot. Time Magazine has called Lovellette’s hook shot “unstoppable.” “I just had a real knack of looking where the basket is and releasing the ball and just had that nice touch that was pretty accurate and that’s all I shot in college,” Lovellette told The Paper. Though Lovellette spent almost all of his
time at the university, one thing he says he kicks himself for is not applying himself when it came to his education. “I had to get my education after I got done playing. I received my master’s degree at Ball State
and I learned to study more in my master’s program than in my undergraduate classes. I think I wanted to be there and I got grades, and I went to class but I didn’t really apply myself as I should have.” (continued on page 3)

Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority asks homeless to appear for count On Jan. 30, homeless individuals are encouraged to be counted as part of a statewide Point In Time Count initiated by the Indiana Housing and C o m m u n i t y D e v e l o p m e n t Authority. In Wabash County, those who volunteer are working to reach individuals who might have slept in an abandoned building or another place not suitable for human habitation. If there was someone whose night was paid for by a local agency or church at a hotel in Wabash County the night of Jan. 29, it is also important that those individuals be counted.
The reason for the count is to determine how many homeless individuals defined by HUD are living in Wabash County and in need of services. Wabash County is part of Region 5, which is coordinated in Howard County. For purposes of the count, HUD’s definition of homeless is an individual or family who stayed in a homeless shelter, transitional housing shelter, place not meant for human habitation such as the street, car, park, abandoned building or a motel paid for with an emergency shelter voucher. On Jan. 30, homeless individuals should go to either: -85 Hope at the Wabash Friends
Church, 3563 State Road 13, Wabash between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. -Bright Light Congregational Christian Church, 310 N. Walnut St., North Manchester between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. There will be backpacks filled with gloves, hats, and other materials available to anyone who successfully completes a form at either survey location. If anyone needs additional information or has questions about the Point In Time Count they can be directed to Linda Wilk, Hands of Hope Director, a division of Family Service Society, Inc. by email at lwilk@famser-

tiple job positions before finding his second calling. He went into radio and television announcing, was sheriff of Vigo County and even moved to Massachusetts where he taught history and coached girls’ basketball for a year. Finally, Lovellette ended up at White’s Family and Residential Services. Lovellette found his second calling working with the kids at White’s. “The greatest experience at White’s is just like the scripture says, you plant seeds. I think the greatest thing we can do is plant seeds for kids who have never heard about the Lord. Their one mindset is bad, but to change a kid around, and you won’t really know. There were a lot of kids who would accept Christ, but you don’t know.” There is one reward, other than his gold medal, that Lovellette holds in high esteem. “The greatest reward is when a stu-
dent calls you down the road and says, ‘Coach, I’m married now, I have kids, I go to church, and I love the Lord.’ That’s the reward later down the road.” Working with the kids at White’s and his own personal experiences as a student athlete allows Lovellette to leave current students with this advice, “If you don’t do your academics before basketball, you’re doing an injustice to two things: your family and yourself,” said Lovellette. Basketball is something that is not going to be with you all your life, but the education is going to make you more valuable to society than basketball.” Lovellette retired from White’s in 1995 and currently resides in North Manchester, where he can frequently be seen attending Manchester University basketball games.

After the Olympics, Lovellette was drafted by the Minnesota Lakers, a team with which he won his first of three NBA championships and became the inaugural member of basketball’s “Triple Crown Club,” an accomplishment that never even crossed Lovellette’s mind. The Triple Crown Club is made up of seven basketball players who have won an NCAA Championship, an NBA Championship, and an Olympic Gold Medal. “That reward and you buying me a cup of coffee would be the same to me. It’s good to get rewards and be recognized, don’t get me wrong, but winning the gold medal for the United States, that’s important.” Lovellette also joked that Kobe and Lebron can make all that money, but they’ll never be apart of that club, but awards and accomplishments like the triple crown club or being the only basketball player to lead the nation in scoring and win an NCAA championship in the same or his three NBA championships, his 11,947 points in the NBA or being inducted into multiple hall of fames do not compare to winning a gold medal for the United States in Lovellette’s eyes. “Gold medal is the best. I keep coming back there,” added Lovellette. When Lovellette decided to retire, he found himself in mul-

Brantley Coal Krom is born
Basketball legend Clyde Lovellette... All his hard work paid off in 1952. The Kansas University Jayhawks won the 1952 NCAA championship, fulfilling the first part of Allen’s prophecy. Lovellette was and is the only basketball player to lead the nation in scoring and win the NCAA championship in the same year. After winning the championship, Lovellette was playing amateur ball when he and six of his KU teammates were selected to compete in the 1952 Helsinki Olympics. “I fault the Olympic committee now for taking all the pros. We played against national teams. Every team we played was supported by their country. They’ve got the pros in there and that reduces the chance for an amateur ball player to win the gold or play in the Olympics,” said Lovellette. The Americans ended up facing and defeating the Russians for the second time in the games, clinching the gold medal for the United States, and completely fulfilling Allen’s prophecy. “If you take all of what I have done and all the awards I have won, I think that tops the list. You are representing the United States, not a team or a state, the whole United States. There is no better reward but to represent the United States,” Lovellette said of winning Olympic gold.

It should be about supporting freedom, individual rights, and the pursuit of happiness. The issue of prohibiting civil unions for anyone is a civil rights issue, just as slavery and the right to vote for women were civil rights issues. During my career, I have worked with many gay, lesbian, and transgendered parents and their children. I have also worked with many straight couples and their children after the parents have divorced. I have seen much more damage done to children of divorced straight couples than I have seen with gay, lesbian, or transgendered couples who are in a committed relationship and have children. As a Christian, my Savior, Jesus Christ, did not speak directly about homosexuality. He did, however, speak directly about divorce. We need to look at how we “allow” divorce and how that freedom goes against the teachings of Christ. Many large and small businesses in Indiana are opposed to HJR-3. Collectively, those businesses bring a lot of economic stimulus to Indiana. The legislature should not be focused on taking away a civil right that will harm our economy. If the question of a definition of civil unions is still an issue that needs to be addressed five years from now, it can be. Within that five years, the United States Supreme Court will probably decide that the civil rights of those who have a sexual orientation other than straight need to be protected. The newspapers, radio stations, television stations, and internet entities who sell the advertisements to those groups on both sides of this discussion will be the only winners, and the losers will be the people of the State of Indiana, because of the reasons I’ve already stated and the perception of us created by the furor. I call upon the Indiana Legislature to put this issue on the very far “back burner.” Jim Smith North Manchester

Jessica Howell and Jason Grossman wed Sept. 15, 2013 Jessica Howell and Jason Grossman were joined in marriage on Sunday, Sept. 15, 2013 at Salomon Farms in Fort Wayne. The outdoor ceremony was held under an arch built by the bride’s father and the aisle was lined with fresh floral bouquets and featured a burlap and lace aisle runner. Pastor Darrell Borders of Portland officiated the ceremony, with the blessing of the couple performed by Reverend Richard Strick of Huntington. The bride wore a strapless gown accented by beaded and embroidered lace appliqué sewn onto ivory netting over a champagne satin lining. The gown featured an Organza band, accenting the sweetheart neckline and illusion train. The bride accented the mermaid-cut gown with a handmade veil of ivory tulle and French netting, enhanced with a lace flower. Borrowed pearls from the mother of the bride were fashioned into a
bracelet and an heirloom cameo pendant was worn coming from the bride’s late g r a n d m o t h e r. Glitter-coated, strappy Stuart Weitzman sandals adorned the bride’s feet. A bouquet of white dahlias, lisianthus, pink lilies, pink spray roses, ivory roses, white veronica, wheat, scabiosa pods, seeded eucalyptus, dusty miller and hypericum berries were hand-tied with ivory lace and carried by the bride. The groom wore a dark heather grey pant and vest combo, completed with an ivory fitted French cuff shirt and a wine paisley tie. He sported a rose gold Lucien Piccard watch with a dark brown leather band and a boutonniere delicately crafted with spray rose, scabiosa pod and hypericum berries. Haley Brandt, friend of the bride, Portland, was the maid of honor and Abbie Howell, cousin of the bride, Indianapolis, was the bridesmaid. Both women wore deep wine Trina Turk
sheaths made of floral lace, featuring a boat neck and three quarter sheer lace sleeves. Both cousins of the groom, Joel Benz, Fort Wayne served as the best man, while Brian Grossman, Brandon, Miss. was
the groomsman. Elijah Howell, Martinsville, was the ring bearer, who proudly carried the rings in a wooden box hand-painted by the groom. Following the ceremony, the bride and groom made a brief
Reader encourages people to “love thy neighbor”
Dear editor, It seems that every time I pick up a new edition of The Paper, I always read a letter from a pastor or concerned Christian, complaining about the world and all those who aren’t like them. I felt it was time to speak out; not just for me, but also for everyone who has ever been condemned for being different. I’m not a Christian by any means, but I’m hardly a bad person. I know a lot of others who feel the same way, but are afraid to speak out for fear of being judged. Judged by people who don’t understand. “Love thy neighbor” and ‘do unto others as you would have them do unto you’ are two important things that your God commands. Not to mention Matthew 7:1 in the Bible reads, ‘judge not lest ye be judged.’ Why is it so hard for us to do these things? I’m not excluding myself from this. I used to be very judg-
mental. I’m a far cry from who I used to be, but admittedly I still judge sometimes, unintentionally. Please keep in mind that I am not trying to start trouble with anyone. The point I’m trying to make is, please don’t look down on someone just because they’re different. We may be differ-
ent on the surface, but we are still human beings. Love thy neighbor: thy homosexual neighbor, thy Atheist neighbor, thy African-American
neighbor. Please stop the hate and spread the love. Jennifer Yohe Wabash

Dogman of Wabash County shares 45 years of dogs changing lives... continued from front page to help kids who were about the same size as the dogs be able to control them,” said Hickman-Cohee. “My dog was only like twenty pounds, and she was very shy, and he helped bring her out of the shyness.” After watching Henderson teach, it’s easy to see that his ability to read character extends beyond that of dogs. “The first thing I want to do if a child comes in, well, see that little man with the big dog?,” said Henderson, his eye caught by a little boy struggling with a German Shepherd. “He’s fighting pretty hard. For every child that comes in this room we have a goal for that child. It’s not necessarily what everybody would think, but for me, you can see maybe some issues there, our job is to bring that issue out.” H e n d e r s o n explained how just a little confidence boost would help the boy realize his ability to control the dog and calm his frustrations. “I’ve never met him, but I can tell you by how he’s acting that he needs it,” said Henderson. “And God has a tendency to put
these dogs together with the right people, I don’t care who they are, it’s just the way things work out.” H e n d e r s o n describes how children use dogs to help them through difficult times in their lives, whether it is the stress from a pressure to be a high achieving student or dealing with a difficult foster family situation. “A lot of times we have foster kids bring their dogs, parents will bring their foster children in with their dogs and they form such a bond and they listen and they grow together and it brings the child out, whatever issues they have because they’re able to talk to the dog,” said Henderson. “I like that. I got this thing in my head that no child be left behind.” Henderson relates to the children who confide in their dogs. “I had ulcers at 15 years old, I grew up during the Vietnam War with my brother being in the Vietnam War, so inside I was probably all, tightened up, you know. So, the dog, I’m a little different, people tell me I’m different, dogs are really what brought me out and gave me
someone to talk to and listen,” said Henderson. Henderson then walked over to the boy and adjusted his grip on the dog, explaining to him how to praise him after he does something right. “You take a child who has issues at home or whatever and they bond with their dog and the dog gives them so much confidence, and he needs it,” said Henderson after he left the smiling boy. Any money raised from these classes goes to an account for the 4-H Dog Club and the animal shelter. The non-for-profit “Dog Works” was started by Henderson, Ann Scanlon and Amy Fisher. “I’ve always loved dogs, I’ve always loved kids,” said Scanlon. “I moved to this area a little over ten years ago, and I got involved with the 4-H Dog Club at that time, actually through my sister who’s the agility leader for 4-H Dog Club. “I started volunteering and Gary and I and Amy Fisher started a non-for-profit, Dog Works, to help assist the 4-H County Dog Club and the ani-
mal shelter to help dogs. They’re great people; it really is a good group of people.” “The reason for starting this class is to raise the money for the kids and for whatever issues we can help,” said Henderson. “The number one thing is the child, whatever that child needs from us, that’s what we give.” “They were able to send me to state last year,” said Tori Plath, an interning student with the Club. While working with the dogs and kids a little over ten years ago, Henderson received seemingly disastrous news. “Something happened in 2003, I knew that there was something with me that was not right, so I was diagnosed with stage 4 prostate cancer,” said Henderson. “I handed the obedience class over and that gave me the opportunity to start the adult class. Obviously, I’m still here. Yes, I did have stage 4 cancer, it was a rough road there for a while, but they’re doing a fantastic job with the kids.” Henderson specifically seeks out caring and loving people to
work with the club. “We constantly have kids coming up to us wanting us to hug them, to hold them, wanting constant approval or whatever they need and that’s what we do, so I have to search for the right people,” said Henderson. “Tori Plath is a very special young lady, I can tell she has what it takes. You have to learn how to train the dog, but more importantly, you have to learn how to be with the child.” Henderson finds ways to parallel lessons learned in the course with life in general. If a child is struggling with shyness, stress or anger issues, they can work with the dog to deal with them in a healthy way. Teaching a dog to be wellbehaved gives confidence to the student. Those involved in the course have to be consistent with their pets, and Henderson makes sure the student successfully completes a training command on their own to show that anyone can do something
they put their mind to “The dogs know the commands after about four weeks. It usually takes people about six, eight or ten weeks to fully understand them. But we work with them and they get it down,” said Henderson. Henderson also stresses how talking to your pet helps so many children throughout their lives. In at least one case it seemed like a dream come true. “We’ve had a foster family, and the daughter was so hard because of what she went through. This dog brought her out and it was the first time she ever said ‘I love you,’” said Henderson. “She knelt down by the dog and she couldn’t understand why the dog kept coming after her and I knew the dog, it wouldn’t do a sit-stay, it kept coming to her, and you know, I messed up, I said, ‘it’s just like your dad, when you’re scared, you need your dad.’ And she said, ‘I’m not afraid of nothing.’ I knew then,
oh man, Lord, I messed up there, how am I going to get out of it? And I said, ‘Well, the dog needs you. She just needs to be loved.’ So she talked to him for a few minutes and patted him. The next week, the dog kept coming at her, and this is an experienced dog, she never broke sit-stays, and she said, ‘Well what’s wrong now?’ And I said, ‘She just needs some loving.’ And her parents were standing behind her and you see this little girl knelt down and put her arm around her and you see her mouth the words ‘I love you,’ and that’s the first time that little girl has ever said that.” Sometimes it’s easy to take for granted the unconditional love felt by pets. Henderson, Scanlon and Fisher have found a way to try to return their love through Dog Works. The organization helps with vet bills along with the cost of Dog Club itself.

Duke Tumatoe and The Power Trio come to Eagles Theatre by Eric Stearley firstname.lastname@example.org Thursday Night Blues kicks off Jan. 30 with Dr. Duke Tumatoe and the Power Trio, the first of the series’ three shows. The Power Trio, made up of James Hill on keyboard, Joseph “G.I. Joe” Maddox on drums, and A.J. Jones on bass, will join Duke on stage at 7:30 p.m. Growing up in Chicago in the 1950s, Duke grew up listening to blues. At 10, he started playing drums, and when he was 13, he heard Muddy Waters for the first time. “He was rehearsing in a nightclub and I was out in the alley with a friend of mine,” said Duke “I was so moved, I want-

ed my whole life to be able to be as invested in the music as he was. He would be in the room playing the song, but he was not in the room at all. He was someplace else.” This was perhaps the single most influential experience in Duke’s early life. “I don’t have the same voice he had and I don’t approach the guitar the same way he did, but the essence of his energy affected me and was one of the prime motivating things in my career.” Shortly after, he picked up guitar. He knew that his life would be music, and to this day, hasn’t held a “real job” outside of his music. “It’s the kind of music I grew up listening to,” said Duke. “That’s what I grew up playing and that’s what I dedicated my life to without even thinking about it.” This motivation led him to become one of the founding members of REO Speedwagon, playing with the band for two years. “We had different musical perspectives,” said Duke. “They wanted to be rock stars. That was
their total motivation. For me, it was about trying to be the best guitar player I could be.” After a trip to California, Duke knew he needed to go in a different direction. “The way they were approaching the goals, I was not comfortable with the situation,” said Duke. “As a young man, I grew up on the south side of Chicago and it had a great influence on me and as a young man, I was very impatient and aggressive, and I knew myself well enough to know that if I was in an environment that I was not comfortable with, I would do something bad, so I quit.” That same year, Duke formed Duke Tumatoe & the AllStar Frogs, which he toured with for 13 years, playing up to 300 shows each year. In 1983, he made some big changes in his life, breaking up the AllStar Frogs and moving to Carmel.
“Thirty-five years ago, I met the woman I’m married to, and she lived here and had young children,” said Duke. “I was in love with her and I moved here.” With the move came a new band, The Power Trio, with whom he has toured since. He’s slowed down the tour schedule significantly, projecting that in 2014, he’ll play between 70 and 90 shows. “I don’t have the same gun to my head that I used to,” Duke said about his six children being grown and out of the house. Shortly after moving to the Indianapolis area, Duke met Tom Griswold of “The Bob & Tom Show,” a relationship that eventually spawned Duke’s comedic song “Lord Help Our Colts,” which he played on the show and adapted many times over the next 25 years based on developments within each football season. Duke said that peo-

by Kalie Ammons email@example.com Downtown Wabash welcomes a new member to the merchant family this week. Marelli’s Women’s and Home Boutique opens Wednesday. “We offer the home stuff, furniture, décor, lamps, mirrors, clocks and that sort of thing,” said co-founder Maria Marshall. “Then we also offer the women’s side of it, which is the boutique. It has everything from apparel to scarves to handbags to jewelry and lots of gifty-things.” “With the women’s and home boutique, our goal is just to be really unique and we just really want to reach the heart of women,” said cofounder Kelli Winer. “We want people to walk in and feel beautiful.” Along with being business partners, Marshall and Winer are also best friends. “We both run on the same wavelength a little bit, it just birthed out of friendship,” said
Winer. “This is a joint dream. We’re both women of faith and that united us and we felt we were going to be a part of something bigger than us.” The two believe the eccentric store will be a great addition to downtown Wabash. “We feel like downtown is getting really exciting, we just wanted to be a part of that,” said Marshall. “There’s a buzz, and we both want to be a part of the community and be involved. It’s an outlet for our creativity,” said Winer. “Wabash is where we’re from; it’s home.” Marelli’s will celebrate it’s grand opening on April 1 when the doors to their flower shop are finally unlocked. “Our fresh flower shop is going to be a bit more outside the box,” said Winer. “It’s going to be a little bit more whimsy, floral, wildflower, natural, very unique.” The shop was named after it’s owners, blending their names into a brand as unique as their style.

Wright receives Indiana University’s MLK Jr. Building Bridges Award by Eric Stearley firstname.lastname@example.org Northfield High School graduate and current junior at Indiana University Mackenzie Wright recently received Indiana University’s Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Building Bridges Award for her work promoting equality, diversity, and empowerment on the university’s campus and in its host city of Bloomington. The award is given to one undergraduate student each year. Wright was selected from more than 30,000 students to receive the award based on the following criteria: Demonstrated passion for change or improvement to fulfill the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Demonstrated leadership in promoting equality, equity, diversity, and justice Demonstrated practices of respect and nonviolence Demonstrated commitment to empowerment Developed innovative measures for the advancement of diversity Among other things, Wright was selected because of her volunteer work with Middle Way
House, an organization dedicated to helping victims of domestic and sexual violence escape abusive situations and build a new life for themselves and their families. Wright was placed with the organization for her four years as an undergraduate through her Cox E n g a g e m e n t Scholarship. “The more I got into it the more I felt passionate about it. I just felt really connected to it,” said Wright. “I guess
that’s what led me to just go above and beyond. One in four women experience sexual violence in their life, so it’s something very prevalent in our society. It’s something I feel compelled to help change.” Wright works in the Middle Way House Daycare, community reception, and as an on-scene advocate, which means that she goes into hospitals and talks with survivors, providing them with support and resources. She
also co-founded an IU Middle Way House chapter last year to bring awareness of domestic and sexual violence to campus, and raise awareness and funding for Middle Way House. Middle Way House C o m m u n i t y Programs Director Debra Morrow nominated Wright for the award. A former victim of domestic violence, Morrow has dedicated her life to helping others through situations similar to the one she found herself in.
“While Mackenzie Wright serves those receiving services from Middle Way House with a motivation derived by the qualities Dr. Martin Luther King embodied, she also serves the IU student population with the same commitment,” Morrow wrote in Wright’s nomination letter. “Her ability to balance the needs of our agency and the needs of the students clearly takes a sincere commitment and Mackenzie is motivated to fulfill this commitment. Her passion
to empower individuals that she works with in her role as a direct service volunteer in our agency is inspiring.” Wright received the award during the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day Leadership Breakfast on Jan. 20. “Just being there was really surreal,” said Wright. “There was a Freedom Rider there. Just to be in the same room was crazy to me.” Wright is pursuing a degree in speech pathology as she continues to volunteer at Middle Way House.
“I actually thought about changing my major in order to do something like that,” said Wright. “I’ve thought before about bringing something like that to Wabash because, as you know, there’s not really anything for survivors at all. There’s no resources really that I know of. The cause has been something that has really interested me. I know that even if I don’t end up doing something like that, I know I’ll continue to volunteer somewhere like Middle Way House.”
