As the director of the Leadership Academy of Madison County, Bobbette has helped develop a generation of leaders, showing the way by example. Tom is president of Ivy Tech Community College and has been a force of good in this community stretching back to before his days as an auto parts company executive.

  • Charles Walker, Mike Wren and Merle Summerville were honored by the Madison County chapter of the NAACP at a Nov. 3 dinner for their service to the chapter. Walker received the President’s Award, Wren the Community Service Award and Summerville the B. Harry Beckham Award.
  • Nancy Likens received the local Boy Scouts of America Distinguished Citizenship Award. Likens, part of a farming family, has been deeply involved in health care, education and charitable efforts.
  • Keith Trent was honored as the Madison County Bar Association’s Community Service Award winner. Trent, an executive at Community Hospital Anderson, has served on many local boards and been involved in many charitable organizations.

  • NWS - HB0728 - World War 1 Local Bob Quinn 2 Editorial: WWI commemorated at 100th anniversary On April 2, 1917, President Woodrow Wilson asked Congress for a declaration of war against Germany.

Madison County answered the call, too.

  • OPN - Mootry column mug [Duplicate] [Duplicate] Primus Mootry: The African-American community toward a new narrative African Americans are entirely unique in the annals of American history and, perhaps, the whole history of mankind.
