STATEHOUSE (June 25, 2018) — Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch presented a Golden Hoosier Award to Susan Louise Billings of Greenfield at the Statehouse Thursday for her service and commitment to the community, according to State Rep. Bob Cherry (R-Greenfield) and State Sen. Michael Crider (R-Greenfield).

“Susan has served her community for nearly 50 years, volunteering for organizations around Hancock County,” Cherry said. “She is a true community leader whose dedication and compassion have made her a tremendous public servant for our area.”

Billings is recognized for her work with Hancock Regional Hospice and is a recipient of the Hancock Regional Health Foundation’s Bert Curry Healthy Community Award.

“Susan’s decades of service show just how dedicated she is to Hancock County, and I am proud she is a part of our community,” Crider said. “She is the epitome of selflessness and truly deserves this award. Congratulations!”

The lieutenant governor’s office accepts nominations each year for the Golden Hoosier Awards. The award recognizes outstanding Hoosiers for their lifetime of service to their communities, and is the highest honor bestowed on those in Indiana who are at least 65 years old.
