Lt. Governor Becky Skillman: Speak freely and with purpose

Lt. Governor Becky SkillmanEach month, we ask an Indiana Humanities friend or partner how he or she thinks, reads and talks. We feature that someone in the “How do you identify with the humanities” section of our e-newsletter. This month, it’s Becky Skillman, who is serving her second term as the 49th Lieutenant Governor of Indiana.  Before serving as the first elected female Lieutenant Governor in Indiana, Becky held elected offices in Lawrence County for 16 years and served 12 years in the Indiana Senate.

The Lt. Governor’s office has partnered with Indiana Humanities on a variety of events — including presenting last year’s Ag Essay winners with their winning certificates.

Think: Your thoughts are more powerful than you realize; they lead to ideas that can change your world for the better.

Read: Reading is the best way to stay informed of what’s happening in your community, state, country and world.

Talk: Speak freely and with purpose. It is a gift our founding fathers gave us that people in many countries don’t enjoy.

The National Lieutenant Governors Association says Becky Skillman has more legal duties than any other LG in the country. She has soundly managed five state agencies that administer nearly $1 billion in programs, chairs the state’s Counter Terrorism and Security Council, and serves as President of the Indiana Senate.
