Contest will honor centenarians who still work

Here’s an unusual call for nominations: In search of “America’s Outstanding Oldest Worker,” the
not-for-profit agency Experience Works is seeking people who are at least 100 years old and still employed for at least 20
hours a week and involved in their communities.

Yes, that’s
at least 100 years old and still working for pay. Impossible, you say?

Last year, Virginia-based Experience Works recognized 101-year-old attorney Jack Borden of Weatherford, Texas. A former FBI
agent, Borden is the oldest practicing member of the Texas State Bar Association and still puts in 40 hours a week in real
estate and probate law.

Experience Works is a national organization
that offers training and employment for older people. In Indiana, the agency administers the Senior Community
Service Employment Program.

Nominations for the award are due by March
15. For more information, visit
