Pence appoints Ivy Tech board
Gov. Mike Pence on Monday appointed several members, including Paula Hughes of Fort Wayne, to the Ivy Tech Board of Trustees.
Appointees will serve for three years, based on terms that took effect Monday.
They will help Ivy Tech “continue to accelerate learning and provide an affordable and impactful learning environment for the nearly 200,000 Hoosier students on its campuses across the state,” the governor said.
Hughes, a consultant for both non-profit and private sector clients, also serves on the Board of Directors at Transmission & Fluid Equipment, Inc.
Hughes served as 2nd District Elected Representative on the Allen County Council from 2003 to 2010. She has held various positions during her career, including commercial real estate broker. She has been president of the Downtown Improvement District, director of Development at Arts United, and executive director of the Decatur Chamber of Commerce.
Hughes earned her undergraduate degree from Indiana University and her master’s from the University of Saint Francis.
Dealership backs free pet adoptions
A local auto dealership is working with the Allen County SPCA to provide free pet adoptions.
Operation “Liberate Shelter Animals” began Monday at Fort Wayne Subaru and continues through July 8.
Anyone who test drives a vehicle at Fort Wayne Subaru, 5000 Illinois Road, will receive a certificate for a free pet adoption, with approved application, at the Allen County SPCA, the organization said in a news release Monday.
The offer expires Aug. 31.
“We are so grateful to Fort Wayne Subaru for helping us increase our adoption numbers during the summer months,” said Jessica Henry, shelter director.
Information on how to adopt can be found on the ACSPCA website at www.acspca.org.
