Hank Horner '18
As a Crawfordsville native, Hank Horner takes the relationship between Wabash and the surrounding community personally. Coming in as a freshman, it was his goal to make that connection stronger and inspire his Wabash brothers to do the same. “‘Impact’ is a word a lot of people my age throw around, but you don’t have to wait to get your degree to make an impact. Instead of trying to change the entire world, you can start by helping the person right in front of you.\" One of Horner’s biggest volunteer efforts came in a local gym coaching fifth grade basketball for three years. He has also fundraised for hurricane relief, organized multiple student days of service for Crawfordsville, and has been an active volunteer with the Boys & Girls Club, the Animal Welfare League, and the American Cancer Society. “I think people who have the means to help, should,” he said. “I don’t think life should be lived like a hermit. I want to go out and talk to people, get my hands dirty. At the end of the day, the more successful Crawfordsville is, the more successful Wabash is.”
That’s a Wabash man for you. Seriously.
