GREENCASTLE, September 23, 2010 – Deer Meadow Principle Gwen Morris brought tears to the eyes of those attending the annual Mary Allison Children's Trust luncheon Wednesday as she described a single parent who drove back and forth from Cloverdale with her three kids in a car that had tires so bald the metal showed through.

"It really was a safety issue for the children," said Morris explaining how the school used some of the money they receive yearly from the Mary Allison Children's Trust to buy tires for the car. "It really, really made a difference to that family," said Morris.

Since 1896, local Putnam County children have benefited from new eyeglasses, shoes, medicine and other needed items made possible through the Mary Allison Children Trust. When the Mary Allison Children's Home was sold in the mid-1980's, after serving disadvantaged children for many years, the trust was created. A sum of $1,000 is given annually to each of the nine Putnam County elementary schools. Teachers and counselors at each school determine how the money is spent on an immediate basis. The funds are unrestricted, meaning school officials can use them for any purpose, as long as it benefits the students.

TERRE HAUTE, INDIANA – Terre Haute Mayor Duke Bennett has named Wabash Capital Co-Founder and Executive Vice President Chris Doll to the Terre Haute International Airport Authority Board of Directors. The Airport Authority has six board members with three members appointed by the Vigo County Commissioners and three appointed by the Mayor.

Doll is no stranger to aviation, earning his undergraduate degree in Aviation Administration from Indiana State University. He has been flying airplanes since he was 16 and earned his private pilot license at 17. After marrying and starting a family, he became less involved with flying. "I think this is a great way to refamiliarize myself again," says Doll.

"I'm looking forward to working with Airport Director Dennis Wiss and the Board to help make the most of our airport's potential. It is a valuable asset to our community," Doll said. He highlights the fact that the airport sits in the center of the United States in a state with a relatively low tax base. "With the right effort, the airport really should be able to attract business capital," according to Doll.

The appointment to the Board is for four years, expiring June of 2014.
