Avis Stewart Receives Sagamore of the Wabash Award

A distinguished career defined by decades of service to Earlham and Wayne County has earned Vice President of Community Relations Avis Stewart ’74 the highest accolade Indiana bestows for public service. Stewart was given the Sagamore of the Wabash Award by members of Earlham’s Class of 1974 during a surprise ceremony at his home following Homecoming Weekend festivities. Stewart’s classmates nominated him for the award, which was approved and signed by Gov. Mike Pence. The Sagamore of the Wabash award was created during the term of Gov. Ralph Gates, who served from 1945 to 1949 and has been awarded at the discretion of every governor since then. The Native American tribes of the northeastern United States use “Sagamore” as a term to describe someone the chief would look to for advice. Past winners include astronauts, presidents, ambassadors, artists, musicians, politicians and others who have contributed to Hoosier heritage. Read more at <www.earlham.edu/news>.
