Portage Township Trustee Brendan Clancy has been awarded the Harold Gene Stoffer Trustee of the Year award.
The distinguished award was announced during the Indiana Trustee Association’s annual educational conference, held in Indianapolis, and is “given to a trustee who demonstrates passion and ingenuity for the job of trustee,” said Executive Director Debbie Driskell.
“For that, Trustee Clancy certainly fits the bill,” she said.
According to the ITA, in his first 18 months in office, Clancy made enhancements in Portage Township by increasing operations efficiencies, elevating the quality of life of residents, introducing new client services and programs, and building community partnerships for the betterment of the whole community.
As the overseer of the Bonner Senior Center, one of the area’s largest outlets for senior services, he has implemented new cost saving ideas through a new nutrition program and has prepared a future expansion plan for the center that will add more space, a computer room and outdoor activity areas.
