CINCINNATI - The Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber on Monday announced the newest class of Great Living Cincinnatians.
The 2011 class includes the Honorable Sandra Beckwith, David Phillips, Oscar Robertson and John Tew Jr. M.D.
"The Great Living Cincinnatian Award is the preeminent local honor, and these four very worth recipients join 122 prior honorees as the who's of Cincinnati's leaders," Ellen van der Horst, president and CEO of the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber said in a release. "Members of the class of 2011 can characterized by the traits that drove them to succeed -- progressive thinking and visionary leadership that led to breaking new ground. And while they all were successful in their respective professions, each also has had a significant impact on our region and beyond."
The award, which has been presented annually since 1967, is chosen by the Chamber's senior council based on: community service, business and civic attainment on a local, state and national or international level; leadership; awareness of the needs of others; and distinctive accomplishments that have brought favorable attention to their community, institution or organization.
The new class will be honored at the Chamber's annual dinner at the Duke Energy Center on Feb. 24.
