The Boy Scouts are holding their 27th Annual Distinguished Citizen Award ceremony next month.
The District Director of Lincoln Heritage BSA, Michael Richard, explains what this award is.
Tim Krodel is the recipient of the 27th Annual Lincoln Heritage District Boy Scouts of America Distinguished Citizen Award.
Krodel is a life-long resident of Dubois County. The 1975 Jasper High School graduate attended St. Joseph College in Rensselaer and earned a Bachelor of Science in Finance and Economics in 1979.
Krodel attended Northwestern University in 1985 and graduated from the National Graduate Trust School with honors.
He began his career in 1982 with Old National Bank in the Wealth Management and Trust divisions.
Over the past 37 years, Krodel’s dedication to his clients in the county helped him move up into the role of Jasper Region President. While in this role, he is responsible for all retail and commercial businesses in Dubois County, Orange County, and the surrounding area.
In addition to presenting the award to Krodel, Senator Mike Braun is the keynote speaker.
Braun is a Jasper native and lifelong businessman.
After graduating from Wabash College and Harvard Business School, Braun said no to Wall Street and came back to Jasper to raise a family and build a business.
That once small company is now a national industry leader with 800 employees and 39 locations around the country.
Richard says this program means a lot to the Boy Scouts. He says it helps keep their events and activities affordable for scout families.
The 2019 Distinguished Citizen Award Ceremony takes place on Wednesday, October 2nd, at 6 pm in the Huntingburg Events Center.
