2004 Honorary Citizen - Marlin "Butch" Bauer

The Harlan Days Committee has voted Marlin "Butch" Bauer our Honorary Citizen of the Year. Mr. Bauer retired last February after a 33-year career as an administrator for East Allen County Schools (EACS), more specifically as the Principal of Harlan Elementary School. He came to us from the Walkerton Elementary School near South Bend. When he came to Harlan he had no idea how long he would stay.
Mr. Bauer gained the inspiration to become a teacher and work with children while in high school at Batesville High School in Batesville, Indiana. One of his teachers thought he would be good at it. He taught for three years before accepting a position as an assistant principal in the Liberty Perry Community School system. Two years later, at 26 years old, he become a very young principal.
Mr. Bauer's ability to establish good relationships with his students, staff, and the parents of this community can be testified to by many. He uses innovative motivation strategies with his students to achieve educational and community oriented goals. He spent a day on the roof of the school, was known as "The Pumpkin Principal" for his donation of hundreds of pumpkins, was made into an ice cream sundae, and most recently allowed his hair to be colored yellow and green. I have personal memories of him spending time in the dunk tank at Harlan Days.
His dedication for education is also well know. He was the winner of the $25,000 Milken Family Foundation National Educator Award in 1995 for which he was nominated by Superintendent James Gland of EACS. This award is given by a California foundation and is designed to reward educators and motivate them to further success. Mr. Bauer was one of five educators in Indiana to receive an award that year, the first year Elementary Schools in Indiana were considered.
Mr. Bauer's plans for this retirement were to spend some time traveling. He is also a new member of the sales staff at Mendedhall-Roy Chevrolet. Mr. Bauer was quoted in the Fort Wayne News-Sentinel as saying, "As I look back at the 3,000 students I've been in contact with at Harlan alone, a lot of people have been very, very good to me." The feeling is mutual,Mr. Bauer.
