Senator Todd Young 1-5-18Thursday, on the Senate floor, U.S. Senator Todd Young (R-Ind.) commended Hoosier Sharon Pierce for decades of service in Indiana’s child and family welfare system. Pierce is retiring as president and CEO of The Villages of Indiana, a non-profit child and family services agency.


“Sharon will soon be retiring after a distinguished 47-year career of serving children and families. Sharon also happens to be my aunt, and I have seen firsthand her love and dedication to Indiana’s children,” said Senator Young. “Her work has inspired countless others, including me and the policies I choose to focus on here in the Senate. I know my Aunt Sharon is looking forward to spending more time with her husband, children, and seven grandchildren, and she has more than earned this next chapter in her life. I offer my heartfelt thanks for her decades of service, and I wish her well in this next chapter.”
