Swope honored as a role model for helping others

A business, sports and community leader for almost 70 years in Columbus has received one of the top honors from the state.

Joe Swope Jr., 85, is one of 24 Indiana senior citizens selected to receive the 2020 Golden Hoosier Award, presented through the office of Indiana Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch in collaboration with Indiana Family and Social Service Administration’s Division of Aging.

The recipients are being recognized for their long-term commitments to volunteering, their positive impacts to the lives of others and for serving as exceptional role models, Crouch said.

As a child, Swope had quite a role model to look up to. His father, Joe Swope Sr., was quarterback for the Indiana Hoosiers in 1915 during a brief time that Jim Thorpe serve as assistant coach. Thorpe is considered by many to be the most prolific athletes of the 20th Century.
