Trent L. Garrett Fellowship

The Trent L. Garrett Fellowship was established by the Intend Indiana Board of Directors to honor of our esteemed colleague and beloved friend. During his career in real estate development, Trent was committed to improving the community and contributed to Intend in exceptional ways, serving for more than eight years on the Board of Directors, six as Chair. Trent’s leadership has impacted the lives of thousands in the community.
