Setchell, major gifts officer at DePauw and 1996 graduate of the University, is quoted in an article detailing a campaign by the Greater Greencastle Chamber of Commerce to encourage people to buy goods that are made and/or sold locally.

"Its plans are to distribute educational information, airing public service announcements on the radio and public access television," writes Shannen Hayes. "Plans also include signage and hosting a Web page devoted to the benefits of keeping it 'Green in Greencastle.'"
