_JN_5045Alex Huskey received the 2014 Tony Maidenberg Award for community service during Indiana Wesleyan University’s annual back-to-school convocation on August 20, 2014. President David Wright presented the award during the assembly of the IWU faculty and staff.

Huskey has nearly 25 years of experience in law enforcement, first as a member of the Marion Police Department, and in recent years, as the superintendent of the Indiana Excise Police and the chairman of the Indiana Alcohol and Tobacco Commission.

In addition, Huskey has also served as the pastor of New Bethany Church of God in Christ since 2007, and previously served as the associate pastor of the church for 20 years.

“Each occupation is unique, but both represent the highest form of community service,” said President Wright. Next week, Huskey will begin a new form of community service as the President of the Marion campus of Ivy Tech community college.

Huskey has a bachelor’s degree in social and behavioral sciences, and a master’s degree in public policy and management from Indiana University. A veteran of the U.S. Air Force, he and his wife, Eileen, have two children.
