Hungate selected for Lugar Series

INDIANAPOLIS – Ashley Hungate of Saint Paul, has been selected to participate in the prestigious Richard G. Lugar Excellence in Public Service Series women’s leadership development program.

Hungate, Director of Communications for the Indiana State Personnel Department, has been employed by the state for more than six years. She is Vice President of the Greensburg Public Library Board and past-President of the Saint Paul Kiwanis Club.

She is one of 20 women selected statewide to take part in the nine month program that is designed to increase the number of Republican women in local, state and national elective and appointive positions. Applicants to the series were evaluated on the basis of written and oral presentations. Chosen from a competitive field, these women represent diverse backgrounds and interests, while sharing a commitment to public service. In the 24 years of the series, only five women from Decatur County have been selected.

“I am honored to be included in such a great group of women who have made civic service a priority in their daily lives,” said Hungate. “Since childhood, serving the community has been a large part of my life and I am thankful for the great role models I have had including my parents, grandparents and extended family.”

A life-long resident of Decatur County, Hungate graduated with honors from North Decatur High School in 1999 and Magna Cum Laude from Indiana State University in 2003. She lives near Saint Paul with her husband Adam and sons Eddie and Joey.

The Richard G. Lugar Excellence in Public Service Series is a not-for profit organization funded and operated by the voluntary contributions of individuals and organizations.
