Joe Mellen

Joe Mellen

Joe Mellen was much more than “The Voice of Hoosier STAR” as he brought life and energy to the stage. He was on the ground floor of this event working diligently on the committee year round. As a community leader, volunteer firefighter and a good friend to everyone he met, Joe possessed a positive attitude, enthusiasm, dedication, encouragement, congeniality, a sense of humor, an appreciation for the arts and an industrious work ethic. In his honor this “Rising Star” award is presented to the youth finalist who exemplifies the STAR qualities that Joe radiated on and off the stage.
