Jamie Olinger was just 19, and a recent graduate of Huntington North High School, when he performed for the first time at the Forks of the Wabash Pioneer Festival.
That was in 1977, the second year the festival was held. In the 36 years since, he hasn't missed a year in the festival's entertainment lineup.
Olinger's dedication was recognized on Sunday, Sept. 29, when he was presented with the 2013 Arrowhead Award.

Jennifer Scalf has been involved in the Forks of the Wabash Pioneer Festival for 18 of its 38 years.
During that time, she's seen the addition of a farmer's market, new vendors come in as long-time participants have retired and the formalization of emergency procedures as the festival grew.
The changes continue this year, says Scalf, who is chairing this year's event - a position she's held for "five or six years, I think."
