The Pillar of the Community Award was created in 2014 by Carmel Mayor Jim Brainard to honor an individual who has made extraordinary contributions to Carmel’s business, civic, social, educational and cultural communities within the city of Carmel. This signature award reflects the recipient’s total commitment to our mission of creating a warm and welcoming city, infused with a spirit of volunteerism and good will.
Like a stone pillar, the recipient of the Pillar of the Community Award will be one who has stood tall, upright and sturdy, through all challenges. Upon this pillar, many things can be built and many are sustained by his or her presence. Like a pillar of belief, the recipient of the Pillar of the Community Award will hold true to fundamental principles or practices, his words of wisdom and his actions accepted as true as a basis for reasoning or conduct as it pertains to taking on the challenge at hand.
The recipient of the Pillar of the Community Award will be a prominent person in the community, whether or not he or she ever held an elected or appointed office. A mainstay; a booster; … a champion for Carmel and its citizens.
