Dr. Alan Stewart is awarded with the Circle of Corydon Award


KNOX CO, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Thanks to his efforts in the battle against COVID-19, Dr. Alan Stewart with Knox County Health Department was awarded the Circle of Corydon Award

The award honors Hoosiers who have made remarkable contributions that have bettered the state.

During the ceremony, Stewart was acknowledged for helping slow the spread of COVID-19 and best using available resources.

“I really think this award has to be at the top of my accomplishments. With the stage I’m at in my career, I never thought I’d be here at this time. It’s an honor to receive this award from the Governor. I really didn’t expect it,” Stewart added.

Stewart was presented the award during a meeting hosted by the Vincennes Rotary Club. In attendance were various members of the Knox County Health Department, all of which Stewart says were a big part of this accomplishment.

“When you take a job or do something like the health department, it’s something you take to do this to work for an award. You just do your part and hope you can make a difference. This community has been so good to my family and me,” Stewart said.

The Circle of Corydon Award is the second-highest honor given by the state of Indiana
