Recently, I had the opportunity to participate in Ball State University’s 32ndAnnual Bowen Institute on Political Participation. It was an honor and a privilege to be a presenter for the Institute where U.S. Rep. Andre Carson bestowed the Distinguished Public Service Award to former U.S. Rep. Andy Jacobs, Jr. His wife, Kimberly Hood Jacobs, accepted the award on his behalf.
This award recognizes Representative Jacobs’ service to the citizens of Indiana through his 30 years in the U.S. House of Representatives. He served in the U.S. Marine Corps where he saw combat in the Korean War and was wounded in action.
Congressman Jacobs has proved to be a great role model for our students. His service reflects how to fully participate in all levels of politics and government by creating a network of support among constituents, staff members and fellow elected officials.
