Since he returned to Delphi in the 1980s, he’s gotten involved in several volunteer opportunities in Carroll County, including the construction of three suspension bridges for foot traffic and the launch of the Carroll County Chamber of Commerce in 2005. He’s currently president of the chamber board.
But he doesn’t participate in such volunteer initiatives out of a disinterested philanthropic turn, he averred.
“I do it because it makes me feel good,” he explained. “We think about ourselves ... that’s just human nature. I just believe that we do things because it makes you feel good.”
He admitted that he’d felt “kind of shocked” when he learned he’d been selected for the Charles Carroll Award at its announcement Oct. 30 at the chamber’s annual membership dinner.
“There are lots of folks that deserve lots of things, and I’m probably not one of them,” Bradshaw said.
