Today’s featured author, Kermit N. Paddack, has written two books about local Indiana sports teams, including his alma mater, Sheridan High School. He will be signing books at the 65th Annual Christmas Gift & Hobby Show on Friday, November 5th, from 10:00 AM – 3:30 PM.
Kermit N. Paddack grew up near Sheridan, Indiana and graduated from Sheridan High School in 2002. As a third generation Sheridan football player, he developed a keen interest in the history of high school sports programs, an interest that has led to much research and many projects (past and future).
After high school, Kermit attended Purdue University where he majored in history. He then went on to earn a bachelor’s degree in Library Science from Indiana University.
In 2012, he published his first book, Sheridan High School Football, History and Tradition. In 2013, he published, Tiger Basketball, A Lebanon Passion.
An organization that he works with, and that is near and dear to his heart, is the Indiana High School Basketball Historical Society. Found at http://www.indianabasketballhistory.com.
Kermit lives with his wife and their daughter in Lebanon and works at the Hussey-Mayfield Memorial Public Library in Zionsville. He also maintains that although both of his brothers had more successful athletic careers, he is still the most handsome of the three brothers.
