As a sophomore at Ball State University, I had the opportunity to give a campus tour to a unique group of students. This tour was different than others because it was for a group of prospective Hispanic students who would all be the first in their families to attend college. When I asked what they were interested in studying and what they were looking for in a university, their options for majors and minors were unlimited – and so were their goals and ambitions.
INDIANAPOLIS – The year finished on a high note, with 2015 showing an 8 percent increase in pended home sales over 2014, according to F.C. Tucker Company statistics of the nine-county central Indiana region. More than 31,000 homes sold in 2015, up from approximately 29,000 last year. The average selling price of a home also rose each month of the year as available inventory declined during 11 months of 2015.

MDwise was the top-rated Medicaid HMO in Indiana.
Before I had kids, I was excited about the things I’d teach my children – tangible things like how to sing the ABC’s, color inside the lines, ride a bike, and life lessons like – how to share with others, be kind, get up and try again and have a servant’s heart. The list goes on. What I didn’t realize, until I became a mother, was how much I’d learn from my kids.
Today is my 30th anniversary at Borshoff. I’m celebrating the big 3-0 exactly one year after the agency turned 30. Yes, I started on the company’s first anniversary. Back when Ronald Reagan was president and Robert Orr was Indiana’s governor. My desk sported a second-hand IBM Selectric typewriter. And the agency didn’t yet offer health insurance.
