Rep. Karickhoff presents E.P. Severns with the Sagamore of the Wabash Award

STATEHOUSE – Today at the Rotary Club meeting in Kokomo, State Representative Mike Karickhoff (R-Kokomo) presented E.P. Severns, President of Coca-Cola Bottling of Kokomo, the Sagamore of the Wabash Award for his generosity, kindness and service to Indiana.  Rep. Karickhoff was assisted by Commissioner Wyman, Mayor Goodnight and Don Button, a longtime friend of Severns. 

The Sagamore of the Wabash award is one of the most esteemed honors the Governor of Indiana can bestow. It is presented to those who have rendered a distinguished service to the state.

“I am pleased to present this award to a very deserving community leader and philanthropist,” said Rep. Karickhoff. “Mr. Severns has dedicated his entire life to improving our community and making it a better place to live. Kokomo would not be the same without his service.”

E.P. Severns is a lifelong resident of Kokomo and has served on multiple organizations within Kokomo and Howard County. Mr. Severns has also continuously funded local athletic programs by partnering with schools and by sponsoring the Coca-Cola Little League team since the mid-1950s.

“Mr. Severns has provided generous support to many of our local organizations,” said Rep. Karickhoff. “His unwavering consideration for our community sets a great example for all Hoosiers to follow.”

Mr. Severns and his late wife Virginia founded two endowment funds within the Community Foundation which provide funding for a variety of Kokomo and Howard County organizations.
