Congratulations to the 2 Inaugural Wall of Distinction award WinnersChris Bradshaw, class of ‘71, and Dan McCain, class of ‘58. After graduation, Chris went on to launch what is now the African Library Project (ALP), gifting the opportunity of learning to hundreds of thousands of impoverished Africans. The ALP has shipped more than two million books to rural Africa in ten years, and has aided in constructing over 2,000 libraries. Dan McCain, after graduating from High School, attained a BS in Agronomy from Purdue University. Dan worked, for years, as a district conservationist, and near retirement became a public speaker for the Soil Conservation Service. He is now co-chairman of the all-volunteer Delphi Historic Trails and President of the Carroll County Wabash and Erie Canal Association.

There was a public reception at the Wabash and Erie Canal Interpretive Center on Thursday, May 18, at 7pm ET to honor the winning nominees.
