Making a Difference

A Fighting Spirit & A Big Honor

This week, Governor Eric Holcomb presented a big award and accepted a big new responsibility. First, he had the opportunity to present Purdue superfan and cancer fighter Tyler Trent with Indiana’s highest civilian honor, the Sagamore of the Wabash.

Tyler is a 20-year-old Purdue student who is fighting bone cancer and using his diagnosis as a force for good. Read more about Tyler, his positivity, his love of rooting for Purdue football, his work supporting cancer research, and some other big honors that are also coming his way.

And then yesterday, Governor Holcomb was elected as the policy chairman of the Republican Governors Association (RGA) — an organization that works to elect Republican governors across the country. As policy chairman of the RGA, Governor Holcomb will be responsible for elevating the proven policies that Republican governors are bringing to Americans in states across the country — including right here in Indiana. Way to go, governor!
