Shelby County Displays Memorabilia in Lt. Governor’s Executive Office at the Indiana State House

Indianapolis – Lt. Governor Sue Ellspermann welcomed Hoosiers from Shelby County to her office to display memorabilia that represents the county in the front display cabinet in her executive office in the Indiana State House.

Donated by the Indiana Hardwoods Association, the glass-paneled oak cabinet was built by Jasper Cabinet and given to the Lt. Governor’s Office to showcase Indiana products and memorabilia. Shelby County displayed items that range from local artwork, a jersey, cap & tassel and academic letter that represent schools in the county, a letter from Mayor DeBaun to Shelbyville’s sister city in Japan, public safety officer patches and photos.

“Every county in Indiana is unique and I appreciate Shelby County sharing local items of significance from their community with visitors that come to my office,” said Lt. Governor Ellspermann. “The enthusiasm and pride that citizens of Shelby County have is encouraging and serves as a great model for their fellow Hoosiers.”
