90278January 30, 2011, Greencastle, Ind. — Thomas D. Hession, a 1959 graduate of DePauw University, "amassed a resume that would be hard to match for its civic-mindedness: Shelbyville Citizen of the Year, Shelby County Lifetime Citizen and Community Growth Award recipient; a director of the Chamber of Commerce, and the community foundation, and the Boys' Club," notes the Indianapolis Star. "At its meeting Jan. 18, the Shelbyville City Council observed a moment of silence in his honor."

Hession, who passed away January 16, is the subject of the Star's "A Life Lived" feature.
