1st Source Bank has awarded three Porter County business leaders the 2017 Ernestine M. Raclin Community Leadership Award. The three Porter County recipients are part of a larger group of ten from Northern Indiana.
Recipients from Porter County include:
Jon Winey, Commercial Insurance Producer at Winey Insurance in Chesterton, Indiana has used his creative side to benefit the fundraising efforts of multiple events through the Chesterton Duneland Kiwanis Club and Duneland Family YMCA, as well as their affiliated organizations.
Jim Trout, manager and estimator at Trout Glass and Mirror, a 40- year old family business in Chesterton, Indiana, was raised with the volunteering spirit. Jim spends his leadership time dedicated to the Duneland YMCA, Chesterton/Porter Rotary Club, and, most recently, Boy Scouts of America. His talents include fundraising, building project oversight, and collecting food.
Dr. Julie Lauck, Associate Superintendent for Valparaiso Community Schools; is dedicated to improving safety, education and culture in her community. She helped establish uniform school safety procedures in the event of an active shooter or other emergency. Julie serves on boards for both the Memorial Opera House Foundation and the Housing Opportunities Board of Directors.
These three community volunteers were selected for embodying the spirit, values, passion and leadership of Ernestine M. Raclin, past Chairman of 1st Source Bank and 1st Source Corporation. Award recipients receive a personal cash award, a donation to the charity of their choice and a Globe of Leadership.
