Entry Description
Crown Point Woman Receives Award From Governor
Just Completed Work Helping S. Ind. Recover From 2012 Tornado Activity

A Crown Point woman is being honored for her service and dedication to the citizens of Indiana in times of disaster. Kathy O’Day is being honored as a Distinguished Hoosier by the Office of Governor Mike Pence.

O’Day has helped hundreds of families recover and start new after the statewide flooding in 2008 and Southern Indiana tornado activity in 2012. During her time working in Southern Indiana, O’Day received training through Catholic Charities USA, certifying her as a Federal Disaster Case Manager Supervisor. Additionally, she is one of only 14 individuals nationwide to have received Advanced Supervision and Leadership Training. This highly specialized training and certification allows O’Day to be deployed to federal disasters such as Superstorm Sandy.

While O’Day lives in Crown Point, she has traveled statewide to help those in need. She has helped families in Lake, LaPorte, and Porter counties in Northern Indiana from 2008-11 after the state's two largest disasters, flooding, in 2008, and, more recently, she has helped people in Clark, Jefferson, and Washington counties in Southern Indiana after the 2012 tornado activity.
