Kilps receives the Circle of Corydon

Senator Eric Bassler presents the Circle of Corydon to Joe Kilps of Washington. The Circle of Corydon was created by Gov. Eric Holcomb to honor Hoosiers together with the recipient’s state representative or senator. The Circle is the only award issued and signed jointly by members of both the executive and legislative branches. The award’s name pays tribute to the town of Corydon, which played a pivotal role in our history as the first state capital where our founders drafted Indiana’s first Constitution. The Circle is meant for those who, like our state’s founders, have made remarkable contributions that have bettered Indiana, and who have demonstrated the qualities exemplified by our greatest citizens. Only members of the general assembly may make a nomination for the Circle. Annually, each representative and senator may nominate two constituents, and the speaker of the house, president pro tempore, and minority leaders may each nominate five individuals statewide.
