The Blue Ribbon Steering Committee of the I.U. Dons, Inc. & Donnettes is busy planning the 49th Anniversary Education Banquet, scheduled for October 26 in the Genesis Convention Center.
The committee is seeking nominees for two awards to be presented during the event. The first award is the outstanding educator award to be presented to an educator in Gary that has demonstrated excellence in education.
The other award is the Patricia Tillotson Meritorious Service Award to be presented to someone who has been in the background but is making a civic contribution to the people of Gary.
Those interested in nominating a person for either or both awards should do so in writing, stating the reasons why the person should be selected.
The letter should be mailed to Dr. Vernon G. Smith at P. O. Box 64622, Gary, IN 46401 before October 5th. A resume of the nominee is not required but is desired.
