clarkkellogClark Kellogg will serve as the master of ceremonies for the 2008 Pathfinder Awards Banquet June 29 at Conseco Fieldhouse. The Pathfinder Awards are presented annually to individuals for their contributions and dedication to youth.

The Pathfinder Awards Banquet, the companion event to the Youthlinks Indiana Charity Golf Tournament, celebrates its 21st anniversary with the 2008 event.

Nearly 900 guests attended the 2007 banquet, with proceeds benefiting the Champions in Life Grant Program and other youth-serving initiatives. Indiana Sports Corp. and Indiana Black Expo co-present both events annually.

In addition to honoring the National and Indiana Pathfinder Award recipients, the Rev. Charles Williams Award will also be presented.

Kellogg was the No. 1 draft pick of the Indiana Pacers in 1982 and played five seasons before retiring with chronic knee problems. In addition to his work with CBS Sports and Indiana Pacers’ broadcasts, Kellogg has served as an analyst for ESPN’s regular season college basketball coverage. Kellogg has also worked for the Big East Network and Prime Sports.

Host golf courses for the 2008 Youthlinks Indiana Charity Golf Tournament, which will be held June 30, are The Brickyard Crossing, The Country Club of Indianapolis, Crooked Stick Golf Club, Meridian Hills Country Club and Woodland Country Club. Youthlinks Indiana will take place June 30.

Last year’s competition included 124 teams and 620 golfers at the five hosting golf courses. Over the years, more than $5.4 million in event proceeds has been distributed back into the community to support youth-based sports programs and initiatives through Champions in Life grants and other awards.

This year's award recipients will be announced in the near future. Track & field Olympic gold medalist Carl Lewis (National Pathfinder Award), Indiana basketball legend George McGinnis (Indiana Pathfinder Award), and IndySpeed and Special Olympics coach Cindi Hart (Rev. Williams Award) were honored in 2007.

  • Clark is the right guy for this. For people who haven't seen him speak, he is well worth the time. And he's been a good role model and advocate for youth.

My name is Mr Henry Josh and i live in the USA California and life is worth living right now for me and my family and all this is because of one man sent by GOD to help me and my family, i once had a life filled with sorrow because my first SON needed a kidney transplant and all our savings were going towards his medications and this normally leaves us with no money to pay our bills or even put enough food on our table and our rent was due and no funds to pay these bills and life felt so unfair to me and every night my wife will cry herself to sleep every night until one day, i was browsing through yahoo answers and i saw a striking advert of a man that gives out personal loans and that the offer is opened to all and i have heard so many things about internet scams but at this point of my life, i was very desperate and ready to take any risk and at the end of the day, i applied for this loan and from one step to another, i got my loan within 12 hours through bank transfer and you know, it was all like a dream and i called Mr Daniel Jones A Man who is the GOD sent lender i found and said, i have received my loan and he smiled stating that to GOD be the glory and i was so shocked as i have never ever seen anyone with such a GOD fearing and kind heart and today, i am the happiest man on earth because by GOD’S grace, my SON kidney transplant was successful and today he is healthy, i and my family are living very comfortable and happy and if you are in my former situation or in serious and legitimate need of a loan, you can reach this GOD sent lender via fidelityloanfirm@outlook.com

  4. Elected officials, like Mourdock, get vested in 8 years. It takes 10 years for all other public employees, most of whom make a lot less money. So much for the promise to finish out his term.

  5. Great state treasurer and a good man!! Just curious if the folks who didn't quite understand his quote would like to tell my daughter-in-law that God didn't intend her! Mourdock's comment was correct but twisted and the article didn't mention that his opponent and the press let the impression stand that Mourdock meant that the rape was intended. Stupid people!!
