LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - A Tippecanoe County Commissioner is bringing home some well-deserved recognition.

Commissioner Dave Byers was surprised by community members and local leaders for 40 years with the dairy program. Thursday, he was presented with the Circle of Corydon award in between the dairy show at the coliseum at the Tippecanoe County Fairgrounds. The award is given to someone who makes remarkable contributions to the people and State of Indiana. 

Byers said he feels grateful the community and students would award him with this.

"I'm really deeply honored. I feel very humble, they're good kids. 4-H is one of the greatest organization out there," stated Byers. "I am a humble guy, but this was just overwhelmingly great,"

The surprise was orchestrated by Paula Bennett, State Senator Ron Alting and State Representative Sheila Klinker of District 27.

Klinker said he is one of the friendliest man she's ever met and that this award was well-deserved.

"We are delighted to today to be able to honor Dave Byers for his forty years of wonderful service to both adults and children," said Klinker.
