INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The retired president of what is now Fort Wayne-based hardware retailer Do It Best Corp. is being honored with the Indiana governor's highest honor for his work with many community organizations.
Gov. Mike Pence announced Don Wolf as the 2013 recipient of the Sachem (SAY'-chem) Award during a company shareholders meeting on Sunday.
Wolf started working for Hardware Wholesalers in 1947, rising to become its top executive before retiring in 1993. Do It Best says it now has some 4,000 franchise locations across the country and in more than 50 countries.
The governor's office says Wolf has served with numerous community organizations, including being co-founder and first president of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Fort Wayne.
Pence says Wolf's work in the community is unparalleled.
