Honorees Announced for 2020 Seniors Who Rock
What makes a senior a Senior Who Rocks? Our honorees are people who are at least 70 years old, and they are still active, working or volunteering and adding a value and vibrancy to our community. They are, in other words, inspirational.
Join us in celebrating our 2020 Honorees:
A pioneer in women’s basketball, Ohio Women’s Basketball Hall of Famer, legendary basketball coach and director of athletics at Mt. St. Joseph University, and softball star, Jean launched her next chapter with a guitar and her singing voice. She supports many charitable causes with musical performances.
Founder of Summer Work Experience in the Law (SWEL) in 1988, Jim retired briefly from the City Solicitor’s office before embarking on his work for juveniles with the Hamilton County Public Defender, seeking to find hope in what others deemed hopeless. Although now retired, Jim continues to actively support SWEL, mentoring and connecting African American college and high school students for a career in the law.
While she began her career as an educator, Barbara is probably best known for her local philanthropy including her nearly 50 years of service to CET and public television. Among her numerous honors are her 2019 MacDowell medal for lifetime support of the Arts, and a regional Emmy Award for her PBS program, “Showcase with Barbara Kellar.”
We will celebrate our 6th annual Seniors Who Rock on Wednesday, August 26, 2020, 7:30 a.m. to 9 a.m., at Longworth Hall Event Center, 700 West Pete Rose Way, 45203.
Early registration is $50 a person, and after August 21st registration is $60.
We hope you can join us!
