Columbus resident Max Cullum was recently honored for a lifetime of quiet generosity and commitment to helping others Thursday. The Exchange Club of Columbus awarded Cullum with the Book of Golden Deeds award at its weekly meeting; the award is given annually to a community member who has worked hard to improve both the community itself, and the lives of its residents, while remaining under the radar for most people. Cullum has helped out at volunteer sites all over town (as well as in other cities in the region) for decades, and he has even gone so far as to repair a church elevator for free, simply because it needed to be done.
Upon receiving the award – which was a complete surprise to him – Cullum said, “It’s something you never expect . . . And you know, I don’t see that I’ve done that much. God’s done it through me.”
