Lynna Irby, a Pike High School graduate and undefeated state champion sprinter, has just been awarded the Sagamore of the Wabash Award from Governor Holcomb. Irby, who will continue her running at Georgia, is the first high school individual to receive this award. It is the highest honor the governor can bestow on a Hoosier resident.There is quite a connection between Irby, Governor Holcomb, and Irby’s high school coach, Dee Dee Nathan. All 3 graduated from Pike High School and both Irby and Nathan have received this award. Nathan was a gold medalist in both the Pan American and World Championships in the 1990’s. It is unusual for this award to go to an athlete.
