Jim Andrew Recognized as Sagamore of the Wabash
Jim Andrew, CEO of Henry Poor Lumber Company, was surprised when Indiana Supreme Court Chief Justice Loretta Rush and State Representative Sally Siegrist, visited his home on January 1 to recognize him as a Sagamore of the Wabash.
This distinction is the highest recognition given by an Indiana Governor. Governor Eric Holcomb designated Jim with this honor for his many contributions to the Greater Lafayette community; his alma mater, Ball State University; and within the state Republican Party for the past 30 years. Jim’s business interests include Henry Poor Lumber, Flooring Express, Henry Poor Packaging and Henry Poor Manufacturing.
The award states, “In recognition of a lifetime of excellence and virtue that has brought credit and honor to Indiana.” The Sagamore of the Wabash is a personal tribute given to those who have rendered a distinguished service to the state or to the governor. Among those who have received Sagamores are astronauts, presidents, politicians, ambassadors, artists, musicians, and those who have contributed greatly to our state’s heritage.
Jim remarked when presented his certificate, “This is quite a surprise. I am very honored to have been selected for this recognition. It’s a tribute to my family and all those who have supported me throughout my career.”
Congratulations Jim on a well-deserved honor.
