Snyder receives Sagamore of Wabash

ANDERSON — Bobbette Snyder never dreamed she would get the prestigious Sagamore of the Wabash Award, so she was shocked when she received the honor at her retirement dinner last week at Anderson Country Club.

"I was so humbled to be selected," Snyder said. "This award means a great deal to me."

Snyder was executive director of the Leadership Academy of Madison County for 22 years.

Pam Shoot, program director for the LAMC, worked with Snyder for 17 years. Shoot said Snyder was richly deserving of the award.

"She has given back more than her fair share to the community," said Shoot. "She has endless energy and passion for making Madison County and Indiana a better place."

Shoot credited State Rep. Terri Austin, Anderson, with the idea of nominating Snyder for the Sagamore award. Austin notified Gov. Mike Pence, who selects Sagamore recipients.

Keith Trent, Community Hospital Anderson vice president and chief foundation officer, said Snyder has been a "great influence" on the community.

"She is somebody who grew up in the Madison County community, and she has touched so many lives, adult and youth," Trent said. "She has championed leadership, both personally and professionally."

In retirement, Snyder plans to continue working in the interests of the Madison County community.

About the award The Sagamore of the Wabash Award is the highest distinction in Indiana by the state governor. The award is distinguished by "humanity in living, loyalty in friendship, wisdom in council, and inspiration in leadership."
