Bar association honors Pensec for service

ANDERSON — Longtime businessman and philanthropist Robert J. Pensec was recently recognized by the Madison County Bar Association for his commitment to community service.

Evan Broderick, president of the bar association, honored Pensec, majority owner of Carbide Grinding in Chesterfield, with the association's 14th annual Community Service Award, at an Anderson Rotary Club meeting.

The award is funded through an endowment created by Charles and Hazel Dickmann with the Madison County Community Foundation. The purpose of the fund is to motivate volunteerism in the community and honor volunteers most deeply committed to extraordinary community service.

Through the award, members of the legal community joined the Dickmanns in recognizing Pensec for his outstanding volunteerism and contribution of time and advocacy.

Involved with local charities since arriving in Anderson in 1964, Pensec has served in leadership roles in several organizations. His greatest passion has been serving individuals with disabilities. Pensec has many years of service with the Special Olympics of Madison County, and is the initiator and a partner in the establishment of the Jimmy Fund, which supports organizations that help individuals with disabilities.

A donation of $2,500 was made to The Jimmy Fund on Pensec’s behalf.
