365 days later: Henryville residents celebrate recovery, community

(Continued)

HENRYVILLE —

Indiana Gov. Mike Pence recounted the efforts it took to get the town and the school rebuilt, but also said there was a sense of community that still resounds across the country.

He said after everything that happened, he’s glad to see the Henryville Hornets back in the place they call home.

“And to our fellow Americans from Henryville, we say thank you to them,” Pence said. “We have rebuilt much, we are back in the Hive. But there is more work to do. More lives to be rebuilt, more structures to be completed.

“Because the courage and wisdom of parents, school officials, first responders, neighbors and friends, this community found a way through those agonizing moments and every day since.”

Jason Nierman, Lindsey Nierman’s husband, said even though the community worked together before, the storm strengthened the bond between everyone.

“You tried to help out the most you could,” Jason said. “It made us get to know everyone, even the neighbors we didn’t know before.”

A memorial also was held in Pekin, where five people died. Look for more stories from the two areas at newsandtribune.com and in Monday’s edition.
