Colts chaplain, police chief, former convict speak to students

PENDLETON, Ind. — Three friends spoke Friday morning at Pendleton High School to impart wisdom to students.

Indianapolis Colts Chaplain Ken Johnson, Elwood Police Chief Sam Hanna and Kevin Hummel Sr. kicked off “Power II Win,” a campaign aimed at helping the youth of Madison County make good life choices, Hanna said.

It was the first stop for the trio in a tour that will stop at each high school and junior high in Madison County during March. Hanna said the response from students was encouraging.

“I though we were very well received, and we’re looking forward to talking to even more kids,” Hanna said.

Hummel, a former criminal and motorcycle-gang member, is the founder of Second Chance to Get It Right, a charity and volunteer organization with a goal of community improvement.

After serving a 10-year prison sentence, Hummel started the organization with the help of Hanna, who said they’ve been friends since. The two have worked with Operation Love for more than two years in various fundraising endeavors.

Hanna said anyone interested in receiving more information on “Power II Win” can call him at 765-602-3840.
