Former Trustee Jean Paul Lushin Remembered
The January 24th death of Jean Paul Lushin who served faithfully in the office of Trustee of the Center Township of Howard County Indiana for over 32 years is nothing less than the end of an era. Jean's loss is one that will be felt far beyond the borders of Center Township, but it is one that will be deeply felt within this office. The majority of the staff at the Center Township Office of the Trustee began their career under Jean and until 2015 had only worked under one trustee. So for all of us at the Township Office this is a time of grief. However, to best honor Jean's memory, the staff of the township will continue to serve the needs of Center Township residents to the best of our ability.
