Rushville, IN, October 6, 2011 - Larry Stout, Rush County Heritage president, received the 2011 Sandi Servaas Memorial Award at Indiana Landmarks' September annual meeting. He brings his award back to Rush County where it joins two previous awards for preservation efforts.

Rush County resident and volunteer Larry Stout is the most awarded preservationist in the state of Indiana, having recently received the prestigious Sandi Servaas Memorial Award from Indiana Landmarks. The Servaas Award is Landmark's highest honor given annually for individual preservation service.

Local historian Eleanor Arnold, in nominating Stout for the award, wrote, "A sign on Ronald Reagan's desk said, "There is no limit to what a man can do or where he can go if he doesn't mind who gets the credit." These lines describe Larry Stout perfectly. There are more words - quiet, unassuming, incredibly hardworking, persistent, patient, dedicated, motivational, selfless, tireless - all these describe a great leader."
