Greater Indiana Clean Cities partners in bio-fuels deployment met for lunch on Friday, February 28 to award former Lt. Governor Becky Skillman with the 2014 Ethanol Stakeholder award and to thank her for her longstanding friendship with the Greater Indiana Clean Cities Coalition.
During her term as Lt. Governor, Mrs. Skillman was responsible for the rapid and successful growth of E85 stations across Indiana. Through sheer determination of the former Lt. Governor, Indiana grew from just one E85 station when she took on this mission, to over 140 in less than three years. It was the only through the assistance of the Lt. Governor and her office that made this growth possible and thereby putting Indiana on the map as a leader in bio-fuels deployment for Hoosier motorists.
Today, the former Lt. Governor is President and CEO of Radius Indiana, a regional partnership representing 8 counties in South Central Indiana: Crawford, Daviess, Dubois, Greene, Lawrence, Martin, Orange, and Washington Counties.
Formed in 2009, Radius Indiana also serves as a primary point of contact in Indiana for Crane.
