Late Mayor Robert McCallen Jr. was posthumously named the 2015 Distinguished Citizen at the Wabash County Chamber of Commerce annual dinner on Thursday, Oct. 22.
 
McCallen, who passed away Sept. 8, was selected to receive the award over the summer, Chamber President Kim Pinkerton told the nearly 250 people gathered at the Honeywell Center’s Legacy Hall for the event.
 
Mayor McCallen’s sons, Bryan McCallen and Judge Robert McCallen III, accepted the award on behalf of the family.
 
“On behalf of my family … thank you for this honor,” Judge McCallen said. “Dad always said brevity is a virtue. While I don’t think he thought that applied to him, I will honor that tonight. 
 
“We are sorry he could not be here for this wonderful award. He would be humbled and grateful. He genuinely loved this community and he wanted to make it the best it could be.”
