(La Porte, IN) - La Porte Mayor Tom Dermody has been recognized for his support of the high school bowling team.
Keith Gaekle, one of the coaches on the bowling team, presented Dermody with a team jersey during last night’s La Porte City Council meeting. Gaekle said the mayor began showing support for the squad after taking over as mayor nearly 21 months ago.
Dermody has done things for the program, like fundraising and rolling the ceremonial first ball to kick off the sectionals the bowling team hosted earlier this year.
“In your short time as mayor, you have given the program more recognition than any city official, than any school official. We appreciate your support,” Dermody said.
After presenting Dermody with the team jersey, Gaekle posted pictures with Dermody and other city officials.
