Olympic medal winner Nick Goepper is at the state capital Monday as he is being presented with a Distinguished Hoosier award at 1:30 p.m.

Governor Mike Pence will present the award to the Lawrenceburg native who has launched into sudden stardom following the bronze medal win in the slopestyle skiing competition in Sochi.

Goepper has remained busy since returning to the states. He was on a media tour in New York City and spent the past weekend in Chicago for the Polar Plunge that benefits the Special Olympics.

The City of Lawrenceburg and Perfect North Slopes will host a welcome home celebration for Goepper on Saturday, March 8.

It will begin with a parade for Nick and his family at 10:30am on Walnut Street in downtown Lawrenceburg.
