Dowden named Herald-Press Citizen of the Year

Posted: Thursday, March 7, 2013

Because of his great impact on Huntington County, The Herald-Press has named President G. Blair Dowden the Citizen of the Year.

“The Citizen of the Year is an award that helps recognize a person that has brought extra recognition to Huntington County above and beyond their call of duty for their actual job,” said Andy Eads, publisher of The Herald-Press. “Blair has worked tirelessly in his tenure here to put us on the map. He has encouraged the students to be involved in our community and made sure that programs were created that helped them interact with the community. The type of students he has targeted have helped enrich our community in ways that we will never be able to measure. Many of them have elected to make this their home for life.”

Dowden was presented a plaque by Eads and Editor Megan Greve on Tuesday morning.
