Community service earns man award
Jack Brady, director of Project Leadership, received the Tony Maidenberg Award for community service during Indiana Wesleyan University‘s annual back-to-school convocation Wednesday at Phillippe Performing Arts Center. About 800 IWU employees attended the convocation.
Brady, who came to Marion in 1983 to teach criminal justice at IWU, is a former Grant County coroner and jail chaplain. He also was instrumental in establishing a Kid’s Hope program in all county schools.
Five years ago, Brady made three trips to New York City to work as a chaplain at Ground Zero in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks. In addition, he led a goodwill mission of police officers to Russia and hosted a return visit of Russian officers to Marion.
