FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - Fort Wayne Philanthropist Tom Kelley was honored by Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb Wednesday.
He was presented the Sagamore of the Wabash by Indiana First Lady Janet Holcomb.
The Sagamore of the Wabash is the state's highest honor for civilians.
Kelley said it was an honor to receive the award a second time.
"I don't deserve it, there are a lot of great people who do a lot of great things. I accuse Phil Marquetta of doing just so I show up. No, it's an honor," said Kelley.
Kelley received the honor during the Indiana DNR Foundation's biannual conservation banquet.
His first Sagamore of the Wabash was awarded by Governor Frank O'Bannon.
