Lou Thieblemont Wins S.A.G.E. Award

Lou Thieblemont Wins Sage AwardLou Thieblemont is the former mayor of Camp Hill, PA and a regular at the Cornerstone Coffeehouse. He is now also a 2012 S.A.G.E. award winner for his work in the community.

Lou Thieblemont’s life story begins in New York City, where he was born and raised. He took flying lessons, did computerized flight planning for Air France and got hired to fly TWA planes. Jump ahead to the 1990s – he’s living in Camp Hill, flying for American Airlines, volunteering for the former Museum of Scientific Discovery in Harrisburg, offering small-plane rides as fundraisers for the Perry County Council of the Arts and volunteering as webmaster for the Camp Hill Police Department. Then, he says, “Subsequently, I became mayor of Camp Hill.”

Back up there. You don’t just wake up one day and become a mayor.

“Actually, it was pretty much like that,” he responds. It was an outgrowth of his work with the police department. “I really, really believe in volunteerism. It’s a very American thing. It’s a very wonderful thing that happens a lot in a democracy, that you can get involved and do things, and you do it for free.”
