Purdue President Mitch Daniels took time Thursday to honor two men who helped evacuate residents from an off-campus apartment that was totaled by fire earlier this month.

Daniels gave the school’s “One Brick Higher” award to sophomore ROTC cadet Greg Cohen and to 28-year employee Kevin Thedans.

Both helped rescue people from the blaze, which took the life of 22-year-old Cody Day.

Daniels says he talked with both men in the days leading up to the ceremony, and neither sought praise.
