Owen County Judge-Executive Casey Ellis received the Henry Bertram Spirit of Public Health Award from Three Rivers Health Department, which serves Carroll, Gallatin, Owen and Pendleton counties.

Ellis was named as the award recipient in December, but was unable to collect the award until the Feb. 21st meeting.

“This award is named after Henry Bertram, who was the Judge-Executive in Pendleton County. He was such a dedicated public servant. This award is given to someone who, like Judge Bertram, is always looking to better the communities we serve,” said Georgia Heise, Three Rivers Health Department director.

Heise said, “Judge Ellis is so deserving of this Spirit of Public Health award. He’s always very enthusiastic about finding new ways to serve the people of Owen County, which is also the mission of the health department.”

Since taking office in 2015 Ellis has contributed to many public health projects, including planning for a Health & Emergency Services complex, developing a recreational trails plan, as well as his continued work to keep health providers in the region.
