Henry F. Schricker

Nominations for the coveted Henry F. Schricker award are being accepted until Tuesday, Sept. 30.

The award is given to a Starke County resident who has shown that he or she has put “service before self”. That was the motto of former governor Henry F. Schricker who exemplified that action while in office and as a upstanding resident of Starke County.

The Starke County Chamber of Commerce will review all submissions and a committee of former award winners will select this year’s recipient. A nomination form is available on the Starke County Chamber’s website at Include the qualities and deeds of your nominee. The entry should include the person’s voluntary contributions and benefits to Starke County.

Send the completed form to the Starke County Chamber of Commerce, P.O. Box 5, Knox, IN 46534 or email

The winner will be recognized at the Starke County Chamber of Commerce Annual Dinner.
