    Writer / Rebecca Wood

    Twelve years ago, Carmels Janet Klochko walked into her first rowing class at the Indianapolis Rowing Center. Klochko was in her mid-40s and looking for an activity that would combine her love of the outdoors, water and exercise.

    I wanted to find an all-over workout that would not be high-impact on my knees and joints, says Klochko.

    Rowing proved to be a match for Klochko. Since that first class, shes become a regular at the Indianapolis Rowing Center and an evangelist for the sport.

    Zionsvilles Sue Iffert shares a similar story. Five years ago, a friend invited her to try a class at the Indianapolis Rowing Center. She immediately took to rowing and has continued in the sport.

    Its great to be in your 50s and competitive again, declares 52-year-old Iffert. It really gets your adrenaline going.

    How individuals land at the Indianapolis Rowing Center varies. Members of the tight-knit community range from teens to 70+ year olds. Some, like Klochko and Iffert, discover rowing later in life. Others are former collegiate rowing athletes who want to continue in their sport. Adolescents, who row for either recreation or competition, make up part of the community.

    Jen Floyd, Executive Director of the Indianapolis Rowing Center and a member of the 2008 U.S. Olympic rowing team, says the Indianapolis Rowing Center welcomes rowers of all experiences, ages and abilities.

    Some may be intimidated or think rowing is an Ivy League sport, Floyd contends. Its not; its a sport for everybody.

    Floyd lauds rowing as a lifelong sport that promotes teamwork and social interactions. She says that the Indianapolis Rowing Center caters to the needs of both the recreational and the competitive rower through programs, classes and camps.

    LEARN TO ROW CLASSES

    Learn-to-Row (LTR) is an introductory class for adults (or

    parent/child) to the sport of rowing. Over the course of 6 hours, IRC

    coaches, with the help of volunteers, will teach you proper rowing

    technique, inside and on the water, as well as educate you on rowing

    terminology, safety and teamwork.

    The focus will be in eight person (sweep) boats. There will be the

    opportunity to scull in a single person boat Saturday mornings after you

    have completed the class (free for the remainder of the month).

    For the novice, Floyd recommends attending the Learn-To-Row classes. These introductory classes teach proper rowing techniques, terminology, safety and teamwork. Classes are held each month and consist of two sessions of three-hour instruction.

    Upon competition of these preparatory classes, an individual can participate in the group programming for the remainder of the month at no charge.

    For those interested in continuing in the sport, the Indianapolis Rowing Center programs include weekly training sessions with experienced coaches. Camps and other sessions are offered for adolescents ages 12-18. Some rowers participate in local or national regatta competitions.

    The Center offers memberships that allow access to the boathouse and equipment. Some memberships include program options.

    The Indianapolis Rowing Center operates from the reservoir in Eagle Creek Park. Floyd touts the location as one of the top race courses in the country. The reservoirs 2,000-meter course has served as the site for many national and world-class competitions like the 1987 Pan Am Games and numerous U.S. Rowing National Championships.

    During the winter months, training is conducted at the Riviera Club in Indianapolis.

    Klochko rows three times a week with the Masters Sweep and Sculling Program. Although she started rowing for exercise, she considers the friendships formed within the group as an added bonus.

    Its not just a great sport, says Klochko. Its a great group of people who share a love of rowing.

    MEET THE MURPHYSAN INTRODUCTION TO THE NEW CEO OF IU HEALTH AND HIS FAMILY

    Writer / Janelle Morrison Photographer / Chris Bergin & JJ Kaplan

    On May 1, Indiana University Health will welcome Dennis M. Murphy as its new CEO. IU Health is one of the largest healthcare systems in the state with 17 hospitals and health centers and also one of the states largest employers with over 30,000 employees.

    Murphy succeeds Daniel F. Evans, Jr. who held the position for 13 years. Murphy brings to the position remarkable experience, an optimistic vision for the future of IU Health and a passion for improving the health of the citizens of Indiana.

    Before choosing healthcare administration as his career, Murphy studied and prepared for a completely different career path. At the age of 14, Murphy attended the St. Lawrence Seminary High School with plans on

    becoming a Catholic priest.

    Raised in a strong Irish Catholic family in a Irish-Polish emigrant neighborhood in Chicago, he came to realize that he had a desire to serve his fellow man, but he also wanted a family. He would spend some of his summer vacations visiting the familys farm in Ireland. It was important for me to give back, and I figured out that I was still able to give back, just in a different way, explained Murphy.

    Murphys educational background includes a degree from where else? The University of Notre Dame in pre-professional studies with a focus in political science. Afterwards, Murphy attended and earned a masters degree in healthcare administration from Duke University.

    Murphy came on board as the IU Health

    Chief Operating Officer (COO) in 2013 and was named president in September 2015. Prior to moving to Indiana and joining IU Health, Murphy was the COO and Executive Vice President for the renowned Northwestern Memorial HealthCare system located in Chicago, which like IU Health, is closely affiliated with a medical school.

    Murphys resume also lists being Vice President of Ambulatory Services and Financial Planning for University of Chicago Hospitals and a decade of service at the prestigious Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland, as Administrator of the Department of Medicine.

    Murphy is highly regarded in his field for a litany of accomplishments over the span of his career and continues to garner the respect of his peers and colleagues for his innovative

  • TOWNEPOST NETWORK / APRIL 2016 / TownePost.com

    strategies and system-wide initiatives.

    While serving as the Executive VP and COO at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago, they opened a 328-bed womens hospital, and he was credited with implementing strategic plan initiatives that resulted in lowering costs and improving outcomes, improved overall patient satisfaction and advocating for the continued development of clinical research and education programs while collaborating with private physicians and the medical school affiliates.

    Since joining IU Health, Murphy has played an instrumental role in the expansion of IU Health Plans, giving patients access to high-quality, comprehensive care focused on improving their health. He has also led the design of the IU Health systems new organizational structure and Lean improvement efforts.

    This job appropriately allows me to grow much more into a strategic leadership capacity, said Murphy. I view my role as being a steward of an organization with a reputation for providing high-quality care, a strong leadership team, solid partnerships and an impressive record of success. Our hospitals have been here for over 100 years. Our job is to ensure that theyll be here for the next 100 years to

    provide care for patients and populations who come to us. Indiana does not rate well on a number of health measures, and as the leading healthcare provider in Indiana, we must improve the health of patients throughout the state.

    After accepting the position with IU Health, Murphy moved his family from Chicago to Westfield where he resides with his wife, Kristy, and their three children, Dennis, James and Ella.

    For us as newcomers, the move has been fantastic, Murphy expressed. People have been incredibly warm and welcoming. On the first day that we moved into our house, we had neighbors from all over the neighborhood come over to greet us. That kind of reception made us feel at home and allowed us to acclimate quickly here. It has meant a great deal to me to know that my family feels comfortable and is enjoying living here. This relocation has been a wonderful experience both personally and professionally.

    Murphy has become personally invested in the American Lung Association, a cause dear to him due to several family members having suffered from lung disease and died at relatively young ages. Murphy acted as the Vice Chair for the associations main fundraiser in 2015 and is the Chair of this years Evening of Promise Gala. Their mission is to raise awareness and funds to fight lung

    cancer, the leading cause of cancer death.

    Kristy feels similarly in that it has been a great move for the family. She also has an extensive background in healthcare administration and fully supports the demands of her husbands position. She has become involved with local charities such as the Women for Riley and fundraising in general for IU Health.

    As a family, she mentioned that the entire family volunteers for Gleaners Food Bank when possible. She also emphasized the importance of balancing her familys and husbands schedules and how she and Dennis prioritize to put their family first.

    When Dennis comes home, the whole house lights up. Hes extremely engaged hes not on his phone or the computer. Conversation and connecting are important, and its incredible hes able to extract things from the kids or learn about their days in a matter of minutes and takes a very sincere interest in all of us. Youll find him shooting basketball with James, playing volleyball with Ella and working out with Dennis when hes home from college. We make time for family meals as much as possible, which is over 50 percent of the time.

    When Im downtown volunteering or there for meetings, we make time for lunch. Its important to find pockets of quality time when we can. The kids school activities and sporting events are scheduled on his calendar. And when there are evening work events, they tend to include spouses, which is nice. We read an article that said its not so much about balancing or separating work and personal life, but integrating the two. Its what we practice. Its all very cohesive and helps keep us connected as a family.

    The Murphy children are acclimating quite well to their new schools and community as well. Their eldest son, Dennis, has had the least amount of time here because he is currently a freshman attending the University of Iowa studying Mechanical Engineering. Their son, James, is enjoying eighth grade and has a passion for basketball. By virtue of his Chicago roots, he is also a big fan of the

    iconic Michael Jordan.

    Their daughter, Ella, is in fifth grade and is active in volleyball and gymnastics. All three children exude great pride in their father and agreed that the time that they spend together as a family is the most rewarding part of their days.

    As a runner, one of the things Murphy has come to appreciate about the area is the connectivity of the local trails and pathways, such as the Monon Trail. I really enjoy that the local trails connect and are easily accessible, Murphy said. When I get home after work, I can run on the trail and not have to worry about vehicular traffic.

    The Murphys have found some favorite local shops, restaurants and eating establishments. Dont be surprised to see them at local standbys Bubs Burgers or The Local.

    When asked how he has adjusted to the numerous roundabouts, Murphy noted that they strike a nostalgic chord. Murphy shared a humorous story of a harrowing experience driving out of the airport in Ireland for the first time. My family, being from Ireland and having living relatives there, we naturally go back and visit them, Murphy said. As soon as one lands in Ireland and leaves the airport, they are immediately introduced to a

    roundabout. Even for those familiar with the function of a roundabout, it presents an immediate challenge driving through one because they drive on the left side of the road. I was driving the wrong way for the first five minutes of my first trip back as the driver.

    Once you have a chance to meet the Murphys, you will quickly find that they

    are an exceptional family that exudes a strong sense of family and a compassion for their neighbors and friends. This is certainly not surprising given Murphys Irish Catholic heritage.

    By all signs, IU Health and the citizens of Indiana will be in great hands as Murphy takes the helm of one of our states most important healthcare providers.

    Having a few months to become acclimated to his new post, Mayor Tim Haak sat down with me to discuss how his life has changed, professionally and personally, since becoming mayor of the historic and growing town. Haak told me that becoming Zionsvilles first elected mayor was not on his radar until the position became available, and then, he jumped at the opportunity.

    When I came onto the Zionsville town council, the position and office of Mayor did not exist, Haak said. There was no way that I ever thought that I would eventually become the Mayor of Zionsville. The position and myself just happened to find one another. I have been very active and have enjoyed being on the council, so when the opportunity arose to do this job on a full-time basis, I jumped to take it.

    Haak was first elected on the town council in 2008. He has served on multiple boards such as the safety board, board of police commissioners and other committees like the infrastructure committee, economic development committee and some of the planning committees that have focused on updating the towns transportation and master sewer plans.

    Setting the stage for Haak was Zionsvilles first interim mayor and current town council member, Jeff Papa. Haak expressed a deep appreciation for the groundwork that Papa established prior to Haaks election as mayor.

    I had met Jeff for the first time when he came on the town council through our first reorganization, Haak explained. "Through our interactions on the council, we became friends. I consider him a trusted friend, advisor and mentor. While we dont agree on everything, which is good

    to have differences of opinion, we are very respectful of those differences.

    Jeff is very knowledgeable on the legal side of how government and municipalities work. I have been able to tap into his resources and seek his opinions. Jeff also lives in a different part of town than I do, and people in his neighborhood have a different perspective on their needs and those of the community than those of my neighbors and the issues that impact my neighborhood. It is very helpful to obtain multiple point-of-views when making decisions that affect the entire town.

    An obvious challenge for any mayor is bringing together all of the opinions and doing what is best for all concerned. I asked Haak what the hardest part of his job is, and he replied, Making the right decision for the benefit of the entire community.

    MAKING HISTORY AS THE TOWNS FIRST ELECTED MAYOR

  • 18 / ZIONSVILLE MAGAZINE / APRIL 2016 / atZionsville.com

    Haak grew up in Zionsville and has family and friends here. He understands that any decision that the mayors office and/or the town council makes affects the whole community, and it is even more important for him to communicate to residents why decisions were and will be made.

    What Ive learned from my business experience and working with the State of Indiana is what will be driving the economy for Zionsville and the surrounding communities is the concept of regionalism.

    Working well with our neighboring communities including Lebanon, Whitestown, Carmel, Westfield and Indianapolis will be critical going forward, Haak emphasized. "Our town is on the borders of all of these towns and cities, so a decision that we make in a certain part of town may impact these areas. Establishing dialogues with these other communities is incredibly important.

    Were very fortunate that our neighboring communities have great leadership and that they are open and receptive to engaging in dialogue to talk about what impacts everybody. What we all ask of each other is that we will be informed of what is happening in the next community over. We

    may or may not be involved in the decision, but we can at least plan for it. We dont want to duplicate our efforts and then have something that would conflict with another communitys effort too.

    Haaks time on the town council prepped him for working with the towns department heads. He spent eight years on the council working with them and was involved in the hiring of half of them. He has made no personnel cuts or changes since taking his oath as mayor.

    Our departments all work extremely well together, Haak said. "If one department has a challenge or needs some help, it is very common for another department to step up and offer some assistance.

    The mayors office is the day-to-day champion that can drive the town and council and be accountable for what happens. Another benefit to having a mayors office is that businesses looking to possibly relocate or move to Zionsville will know whom to contact. Existing businesses can also reach out for issues that matter and are affecting them.

    Residents should know that I am happy to speak to them about the challenges

    and things that are happening in their neighborhoods. Additionally, we can now advocate for our community on things that are happening statewide or regionally that is impacting them. The mayors office carries a voice within the state. We did not have that voice before.

    The mayor spoke to me about his top two priorities for 2016 that include how to plan for the towns impending growth.

    You cannot stop growth, and if you try, you will end up with a product that no one is happy with, Haak stated. "We need to expect and embrace that growth is coming while maintaining the expectation for a high-level product for our community. Ultimately when that product is delivered, its a win-win for everyone concerned.

    We have very few chains and franchises in Zionsville, and the ones that are here are big participants within the community. LIDS is a great example of a business investing into the community. Their executives live in town, and all have made a commitment to be involved in different service organizations.

    Our towns infrastructure is a main priority for our office and council. We are using old county roads for new development, and part of our sewer system is over 100 years old in the Village district. I have made it a priority to invest in economic development and infrastructure. We are focusing on Creekside Corporate Park. That road is going to start construction in the next few weeks.

    Were also putting together an infrastructure plan, short-term for the next three years and long-term over the next 10 years. The goal is to get the plans on paper and put action items behind those plans, so when people ask about them, we can direct them to this document and tell them what is on plan for this year, and this is how we are going to fund it.

    One of the greatest challenges when obtaining state or federal funding for road projects is that it takes a long time to get it into place. It might take five to seven years for the process to be completed. Once we put our plans into place, we will be applying

  • 18 / ZIONSVILLE MAGAZINE / APRIL 2016 / atZionsville.com atZionsville.com / APRIL 2016 / ZIONSVILLE MAGAZINE / 19

    for state and federal funding for some major upgrades and some additional roads.

    I am on the Indianapolis Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO). We were not active in that before. Using state and federal monies is challenging, but now that we have the mayors office to push those projects, it is worth it, and our budget would not support it otherwise.

    Haaks other challenge is more personal in nature. He is learning to balance his duties to his community and to his family. A husband and father, he places a strong emphasis on his commitments to his family.

    My family always comes first, Haak said. Scheduling around meetings, baseball and soccer games presents its challenges. I also coach Little League baseball. In fact, I had practice the other night right before the council meeting. With a twinkle in his eye, he concluded, I made it on time to both.

    Haak is fully invested in his community. He went to Eagle Elementary and graduated from Zionsville Community High School. He stressed that it is important to him as mayor and a resident to maintain the heritage of Zionsville while advancing the town into the 21st century.

    Grab your growler and head on over to Noble Order Brewing Company in downtown Zionsville. The highly anticipated grand opening of the towns new tasting room officially opened for business March 25. Founded in Richmond, Indiana, the brewing company and its sister company, J & J Winery, are filling the steins and wine glasses of craft beer and wine aficionados, right here in the heart of the village.

    Major renovations were completed to their first off-site location here in the Village, and they opened their doors to an excited and thirsty crowd.

    The Noble Order Brewery owners, Mike Miller, Melody Haist and Dr. Jeffrey Haist, have been anxiously counting down the days to the grand opening of their tasting room, and their landlord, Valerie Swank, said that she is impressed by the transformation that the historic building has undergone.

    Main Street is already a thriving and vivacious place, Swank emphasized. Noble Order is going to be an incredible addition. The owners are amazing and fun people. They are business-minded visionaries. The original structure was built in the 1890s and has been the home to a variety of businesses over the centuries. It was once a bank. It

    housed marketing companies, several retail stores, and I believe, it was a grocery store at one time. With the recent renovations, the tasting room boasts 3,000 sq. ft. The owners have been on the ball throughout the entire process, and I am pleased that they have updated the building and have done it the right way.

    A familiar and friendly face about town, Tim Sparks works on many of Swanks properties in town and was a crucial part of the team, assisting with all of the variance issues with occupancy and much of the behind-the-scenes work.

    Tim has done a lot more than hell admit to, stated Mike Miller, Noble Orders co-owner. Its been everybody sharing their input and working together on the design and on the execution of the design plans. Sparks and the Swanks have been an important part of the teamwork.

    It [the building] has gone through a complete transformation, Sparks said. Its an all open concept that is large in space but very welcoming. I think that patrons will feel comfortable and want to hang out in here.

    Strategically placed throughout the tasting room are four televisions for the sports fans, though this is not your ordinary, run-of-the-mill bar. The tasting room exudes a comfortable environment for socializing,

    relaxing, and most importantly, tasting quality craft brews and wines. Found during the construction phase, the original safety door that once adorned the old banks vault in the building is now part of a half-wall installation, paying tribute to the buildings rich history.

    Now featuring on tap and available in casks is their Bad to the Boone American Pale Ale (APA), produced from ingredients made right here in Boone County. They also have 15 of their other beer selections, seven wines and wine slushies, produced from their winery in Richmond.

    The Noble Order owners are community minded and believe in supporting other local businesses. They have met and will continue to introduce themselves to the area restaurants and food-related businesses to encourage the patrons of their taproom to bring in their favorite foods while they sit in the warm and inviting ambiance.

    On behalf of the entire Noble Order family, we would like to say thanks for the warm reception that the town, the businesses and residents have given us, Miller expressed. We look forward to being a part of this community right away.

    KIM DODSON: A HERO FOR THE SPECIAL NEEDS COMMUNITY

    Writer / Kara ReibelPhotographer / Brian Brosmer

    As the Executive Director of The Arc of Indiana, Kim Dodson has learned how to be innovative and take risks, all for the cause of helping people with special needs lead lives of purpose.

    Fate is what brought Dodson to her current position it was literally an accident while she was a junior at Purdue University that steered her career course. Dodson was involved in a car crash that claimed the life of her fianc. After recovering from her own injuries, she changed her major from investment banking to pre-law. During the course of an internship for a Congressman, Dodson was introduced to lobbying.

    During the 1997-98 Indiana legislative terms, Dodson worked for a law firm as a lobbyist representing amusement parks. It was during that time that Dodson met Emily Hunt, a young woman badly injured in an amusement park accident that claimed the life of Hunts grandmother and rendered Hunt a quadriplegic. Hunt was lobbying for

    increased safety inspections at amusement parks. Dodson was representing the other side. After a hearing on this issue, Dodson returned to the law firm and told her boss that they needed a compromise. The managing partner said no. Dodson quit two months later (the law firm no longer exists).

    That summer, the reports of abuse and neglect leaked out about the treatment of patients with special needs at state-run institutions. Without any history of people with disabilities, she felt called to help in this effort as it greatly offended her. Dodson called The Arc of Indiana. Then-Executive Director John Dickerson was looking for a lobbyist. Now 17 years later, Dodson is the Executive Director.

    Current legislation that The Arc of Indiana is pursuing includes Senate Bill 11, which is also known as the ABLE Act (Achieving a Better Life) which created a 529-type account for people with special needs. The other is House Bill 1219, which is called the Diploma Bill, as it requires all school corporations to offer the general diploma to all students; many students with special

    needs are not able to earn the Core 40, and not all schools in Indiana offer the general diploma, leaving many of these students without diplomas.

    Another focus of The Arc of Indiana is post-secondary education for the special needs community. In 2011, while lobbying for The Arc of Indiana, Dodson had a frank discussion with the House Ways and Means Committee Chair. The two discussed Medicaid and Medicare.

    He asked me if I thought it really works, recalls Dodson. No, it doesnt was my answer.

    This precipitated an off-the-record conversation that would impact the innovative approach for The Arc of Indiana for years to come.

    The Arc of Indiana has been seen as a different type of human services organization since its more innovative and business-minded that others. Dodson was challenged to think about things differently. The legislature consisted of a more conservative

  • TOWNEPOST NETWORK / APRIL 2016 / TownePost.com

    group of legislators, and The Arc of Indiana embarked on a campaign to move away from entitlement programs and moved to positively change the public view of people with special needs.

    We wanted the families to view support differently, says Dodson. One means of doing this is to showcase the talents of people with special needs.

    The Arc of Indiana created their platform, Blueprint For Change. Gathering together 20 of the best minds in the country in the special needs field, The Arc of Indiana listened and learned. We asked, Whats worked? Whats failed? says Dodson. How can we be more innovative with people with special needs?

    The entire goal is to lessen dependence on government services for those with special needs, yet the statewide unemployment rate was 82% for Indianas special needs workforce. Once we allowed them to dream of the possibilities, The Arc of Indiana initiated their Indiana Response Team, consisting of Indiana families, professionals and educators. One member of this team was Jeff Huffman, whose son Nash has Down syndrome. Nash was entering high school at the time, and Huffman dreamed of options for his son after graduation.

    Huffman listened to the national panel of experts closely, and later, while driving through his hometown of Muncie, he noticed the abandoned Roberts Hotel. Huffman thought, Wouldnt it be cool to teach job skills to people with special needs in the atmosphere in which theyd be used?

    Huffman shared his idea with Dodson. He brought up hospitality as a possibility, says Dodson, who thoughtfully considered this over the next 10 days. At the time, the economy wasnt strong, but hospitality was growing. She researched success stories of the hospitality and food services sector for people with special needs.

    Dodson called Huffman and asked, What are you thinking?

    Huffmans reply was, If this can be done, The Arc of Indiana can do it.

    The business plan was underway, basing it entirely on research of the successes and failures across the country. The Arc of Indiana looked to create a model that worked.

    They had a greater chance of success if they acquired a few characteristics: a strong university presence, a supportive business community and a mayor who would embrace the mission. Muncie fit the description perfectly.

    Huffman was convinced the Roberts Hotel could be renovated and serve as their training center. During the process, the Roberts property sold. It was a blessing in disguise, says Dodson. The City of Muncie was so committed to the idea, it provided land for the project, allowing a new hotel to be built from the ground up.

    No other city had the synergy like Muncie to pull this off. Muncie Mayor Dennis Tyler had been a champion of Arc of Indiana in the statehouse for their issues. Familiar with the needs of the special needs community, he helped make the Erskine Green Training Institute a reality.

    The Arc of Indiana now had everything they were looking for. Architect Wayne Schmidt was selected nearly the moment

    Dodson met him. We knew we were doing something very special, says Dodson. We wanted shared passion for the project, not just experts in their field. Our architect had never built a hotel but had history with post-secondary education, and Wayne is one of the most big-hearted people Ive ever met.

    For the hotel restaurant, Dodson knew the downside of a basic hotel restaurant. They needed name recognition and a destination for patrons. Scott Wise of Scottys THR3E Wise Men was their target. This would prove to be the easiest influential meeting of Dodsons career.

    Less than two minutes into her pitch, Wise interrupted with, Im in.

    Dodson said, But I havent shared everything that is required by your restaurant.

    I said, Im in! 100%, we will do this, said Wise. End of meeting. Wise was hand-picked. So was the construction team, and the Marriott hotel chain was the best option of those on the table since Marriott has a strong history of hiring people with special needs.

    To give the project wings, the State of Indiana supplied a grant of $5 million to build the hotel and training center. This unprecedented endowment from the State happened in 2013, and all of the credit goes to the Republicans in the House.

    Additional donors include Ball Memorial Foundation who put up $3 million. With the carryover in hospitality training into specific healthcare skills, partnering with Ball Memorial Hospital is a foregone conclusion. Ball Bros Foundation, Muncie Community Foundation, the Shafer Foundation and The AWS Foundation all have been generous supporters.

    The name, Erskine Green, comes from Carl Erskine, a pioneer championing the rights of people with special needs to barriers and perceived limitations. Erskines son, Jimmy, works at the Applebees in Anderson where he has a great sense of pride with his work and his ability to earn a paycheck. Steve

    In a world of change, our focus is steadfast.

    Green was so inspired by Erskines efforts of advocacy that when Greens daughter Jessica was born with Down syndrome, Green helped in any way he could to ensure all of his children have the same opportunities.

    I stand on the shoulders of those that have come before me, says Huffman. Erskine and Green have touched so many lives, many of whom they will never have the pleasure to meet.

    The first class of the Erskine Green Training Center has exceeded expectations. The goal is to educate 80 students per year. Two years ago, that seemed ambitious, shares Dodson. Now with increasing demand, it may not be enough.

    Our family is truly blessed to be recipients of 60 years worth of love, grit, perseverance and passion from parents, siblings, advocates and legislators who have tirelessly worked on behalf of those with intellectual and developmental disabilities, says Kerry Fletcher, President of the Board of Directors for The Arc of Indiana. Our mission is to change the culture that surrounds those with intellectual and developmental disabilities in school, the workplace and the community.

    The Arc of Indiana is fielding calls from across the country to help institute similar programs replicating theirs. By conservative projections, the hotel will be debt-free by the end of 2019. By January 2017, The Arc of Indiana will have their next business plan for additional training opportunities for people with special needs prepared, sustained by the profits from the hotel. Additional job skills means getting more people to work.

    Through the Training Institute, the legacy of Erskine and Green will continue, says Dodson.

    THE LEUKEMIA & LYMPHOMA SOCIETYS BOY OF THE YEARLUKE CANTERBURY

  • TownePost.com / APRIL 2016 / TOWNEPOST NETWORK

    As the Canterbury family traveled to Texas for a business trip, their third of four boys complained of pain along his right side. Luke is a tough kid, shares Angie, Lukes mom. He would cry about the pain he was experiencing but toughen up and jump back into the pool to play with his brothers. We initially thought he was experiencing growing pains.

    Later that evening with their son in tremendous pain, Angie took him to a local emergency room. The initial diagnosis was that he was constipated, says Jamie, Lukes dad. In the E.R., they dont do complete blood work and analysis.

    Prior to this medical emergency, the only other time the Canterbury family had been to an emergency room was when Luke shoved a bean up his nose.

    It became evident later that night that Lukes issue was potentially far more serious. As the Canterbury family drove home, Luke was inconsolable. The original E.R. doc called to check on Luke and suggested we

    take him to the closest childrens hospital. We were near St. Louis but decided to head straight home instead.

    After driving nine hours straight to their general practice doctor with a screaming child in the car, Luke was transported by ambulance to the emergency room at Riley Hospital for Children. The resulting diagnosis was Burkitts Lymphoma, Stage 4. The Canterburys received this news on June 27, 2014. Luke was 4 1/2 years old. These sort of tumors develop rapidly and are capable of doubling in size every 12 hours. One of Lukes tumors was wrapped around his spine. He was moments away from paralysis.

    Burkitts Lymphoma is unique in that the tumors are highly treatable and are composed of soft tissue. However, given the severity of the location around the spinal cord, surgery was necessary to decrease the pressure and prevent further complications. The surgery was not without risk, and since Luke had begun chemotherapy immediately following this procedure, his tissues were

    not healing optimally post-surgery.

    The open wound on Lukes back from surgery was a concern, for he developed sepsis, and we were not sure if he was going to make it, shares Angie. Luke would have many more scares throughout his treatments.

    The Canterbury family set up camp at Riley for two months, with either Mom or Dad staying every night with him in the hospital. Wed bring all the boys to the hospital every evening for dinner with all of us eating together, then one of us would go home with the other boys and one of us would stay with Luke, shares Angie. She homeschools their boys and frequently had one of Lukes brothers have a sleepover with them at Riley.

    Given the time spent at Riley, the Canterbury family created many meaningful relationships with the doctors, nurses and therapists. Alissa Moody, Lukes pediatric physical therapist, was brought up in conversation right away when discussing the quality of care Luke received at Riley.

    Luke is so courageous, so brave, says Alissa who is running for LLS Woman of the Year. You knew he was in severe pain most of the time, but it was my job to pull him away from playing with his brothers and get him to therapy.

    After the spinal surgery and subsequent treatments, Luke needed to learn how to roll over again, to sit up and to walk. The pressure on his spinal cord had been alleviated, and long-term damage had been prevented, but the cost was learning how to become mobile again. The recovery was painful, yet Luke worked very hard through his intense physical therapy.

    What Luke was doing was extremely painful, and I cried with him, shares Moody.

    When asking Luke about his experience, he says, I got lots and lots of shots. Luke had a port, and when he was able to finally go home, he says, I slept between Mommy and Daddy.

    The Canterburys would return with Luke to Riley for two to three weeks at a time following the initial two month stay for additional chemotherapy treatments. During the main stay at the hospital, Luke was angry. It was super tough for him, says Angie.

    Today, you wouldnt know Luke had ever been sick, except for a low immune resistance. He runs around and plays with his brothers like any other rough and tumble boy his age. Hugh is 13, Levi is 8 and Wade is 3. Luke is now 6 years old.Dealing with a situation like this changes your perspective on life, says Jamie. Our family has become even closer because of this.

    When asked what being the LLS Boy of the Year means to Luke, he replied, It means I beat cancer!

    In what is becoming an annual tradition, the Zionsville Show Choirs turned in another dominating performance this year with the Choralaires winning the Grand Champion title in all four competitions this year and the Royalaires doing the same except for one in which they received a first runner-up award. The Crew and Band members also

    distinguished themselves in several of the competitions.

    The Show Choirs didnt just dominate other local Indiana high schools. This year, they traveled to Nashville, Tennessee, to compete in the Heart of America Invitational. Both the Royalaires and Choralaires took home the Grand Champion trophy while competing against groups from all over

    the country. At that competition, Bailee Dodson won as the Best Performer.

    Congratulations on another fantastic year! You will be able to see these hardworking and talented students perform live at the Finale show held at the Zionsville Performing Arts Center May 13 and 14. Tickets go on sale April 18 on the ZPAC website.
