The Indianapolis Colts recently honored Dr. Mark Motluck, assistant professor of Accounting and Business in the Falls School of Business at Anderson University as a part of their 2007 Colts Community Quarterback Award program. The program is designed to recognize Colts season ticket holders who have demonstrated outstanding service to their community through volunteerism. Anthony Gonzalez, Wide Receiver for the Indianapolis Colts, presented the award to 25 deserving recipients.

Dr. Motluck’s service work includes working as a faculty advisor for the Anderson University Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) chapter and serving for many years in a variety of volunteer roles through Saint John’s Lutheran Church in Anderson. In addition he has spent several summers serving aboard as a volunteer adjunct faculty member at Lithuania Christian College in Lithuania, a volunteer at Vaikai Children’s Home in Lithuania and the Rainbow Way Christian Elementary School also in Lithuania.

For the third year, the Indianapolis Colts and Bose McKinney & Evans LLP are honoring Colts season ticket holders who have exemplified outstanding commitment to their community. Through the 2007 Colts Community Quarterback Award, presented by Bose McKinney & Evans, the Colts will be recognizing 25 season ticket holders for their volunteer efforts.

“Our season ticket holders are an important part of our team,” said Nicole Duncan, Executive Director of Community Relations, Indianapolis Colts. “Through the Community Quarterback Award, we want to honor those individuals that are working quietly every day to make our hometown communities a better place.”

To be eligible for the Community Quarterback Award, presented by Bose McKinney & Evans, all nominees must be 2007 Colts season ticket holders.

Through this program, 25 Colts season ticket holders were selected to be named “Community Quarterbacks” for their outstanding volunteer efforts. This year’s winners were recognized at a special luncheon at Carrabba’s Italian Grill in Indianapolis.
