INDIANAPOLIS (AP): Former Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels will be among those honored this year for being “living legends” by the Indiana Historical Society.
The former Republican governor who left office in 2013 will be joined by several others who have made unique contributions to Indiana.
They are Indianapolis Children’s Choir founding director Henry Leck, Indiana historian James Madison, Central Indiana Community Foundation President and CEO Brian Payne and civic and corporate leader Yvonne Shaheen.
Every year the state historical society recognizes a handful of Indiana residents for their local, statewide and national accomplishments.
The honorees will be honored July 22 at a fundraising gala, hosted at the Eugene and Marilyn Glick Indiana History Center.
