05/20/11 During the 40th Annual Marshall County Historical Society Dinner and Program, Mayor Mark Senter took the event goers by surprise by awarding Executive Director Linda Rippy the Distinguished Hoosier Award issued by Governor Mitch Daniels. The Distinguished Hoosier Award is one of the highest awards given by the state of Indiana to its citizens. It is given at the discretion of the governor to Hoosiers who have brought honor to the state through their character and accomplishments.
Linda Rippy has been a committed leader for the Marshall County Museum during the recent acquisition and renovations of Historic Crossroads. This award was given in recognition for her service to the community and dedication to preserving the history of Marshall County.
