George Sorrells, an 80-year-old pediatrician who graduated from the IU School of Medicine in 1962, is known today for his servitude to the local Amish and Mennonite communities in Bedford.
“Many of the Amish and Mennonite work hard,” Sorrells told the Washington Times. “They don’t work easy hours like the rest of us. So they would call home at five o’clock in the morning wondering if they could be seen. Fine with me.”
As a child, at only two years old, he was rescued from a fireplace by an Amish woman name Mary. He never forgot the kindness that Mary showed him, and since then, he’s spent his time hoping to repay the debt.
