Trent gets Community Service Award

ANDERSON, Ind. — Community Hospital Anderson’s Keith Trent received the Community Service Award from the Madison County Bar Association on Tuesday during an Anderson Rotary Club luncheon at Anderson Country Club.

Trent, Community vice president and chief foundation officer, has served more than a dozen local organizations, including Rotary, the chamber of commerce, the Leadership Academy of Madison County, the Paramount Theater, the American Cancer Society, the United Way, Character Counts and Dove Harbor.

“There’s no doubt in any of our minds that Keith Trent is the definition” of a community servant, said retired Community Hospital President Bill VanNess. “He’s absolutely committed to the community.”

The annual award included $2,100, which Trent elected to divide evenly among three charity efforts:

  • The local chapter of Safe Kids Worldwide, which provides car safety seats for children whose families couldn’t otherwise afford them.
  • The Jimmy Fund, which provides local services for the disabled.
  • The Benjie Fund, which helps parents of deceased children afford funeral arrangements.

Funding for the awards comes from the Madison County Community Foundation Charles H. Dickmann/Madison County Bar Association Endowment Fund. The $100,000 fund was established by Dickmann, who has practiced law in Anderson for more than 60 years, and his wife Hazel. More than $47,000 has been distributed through the Community Service Award program since it was established in 2000.

    Warm beer lines the shelves inside the Ricker’s BP on Eighth Street less than a foot from a refrigerated section, but the convenience store is not planning to move the beer anytime soon. That’s because a state law prohibits Ricker’s from selling cold beer to customers.
