**Worthington Paramedic Honored As Anthem Angel This Past Sunday\
INDIANAPOLIS – The Indianapolis Colts are proud to announce a resident of Worthington, Ind. as a 2009 honoree of the Anthem Angels program, presented by Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield. Nicholas Powell was recognized at the Colts home game on Sunday, November 1, for his outstanding contribution to the community.
Nicholas Powell, nominated by his mother, Lorena, and his cousin, Amber, has been a dedicated Paramedic for the Bloomington Hospital and Worthington Police Department for seven years.
Described by his loved ones and those whose lives he has touched, Nicholas Powell can best be described as having a servant's heart. At the young age of 28 he has made an impact on his community with his responsiveness, compassion and dedication to his line of work. Nicholas Powell is a full time paramedic and on the CIRT team in Bloomington, a Worthington Jefferson volunteer fire fighter, and a reserve police officer in his hometown of Worthington.
In honor of Nick's heroism, he received four (4) VIP Club Seat Tickets to the Colts game, a feature story with his photo in the Colts gameday magazine (the Scout) and on www.colts.com, as well as recognition on-field recognition at the game.
"Anthem Angels…Honoring Everyday Heroes" was established by the Indianapolis Colts and Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield to pay tribute to Hoosier "First Respondents" who may have received little or no recognition for the strides they have made to help others in human-service related professions.
Nominations are still being accepted for upcoming 2008 home games. For more information about Anthem Angels, presented by Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield, please visit www.colts.com/anthemangels.
