2013 Ethical Humanity of the Year award calls for nominations
Do you know an individual or organization that has contributed to improving the lives of people and making our community a better place? The Ethical Humanist of the Year Award recognizes these often unsung heroes who dedicate themselves to serving humanity. Nominations are being sought for the 2013 J.F. Hornback Ethical Humanist of the Year Award.
This award was established in 1975 by the late James S. McDonnell in honor of James F. Hornback, Leader of the Ethical Society at that time. The award is given in recognition of individuals or organizations who have exemplified ethical humanism through courage, innovation and dedication to others. One nominee from the extended St. Louis community is selected each year to receive the award, which carries an honorarium of $1,000.00.
Nominations must be received by Friday, June 28. For nomination guidelines, visit http://ethicalstl.org/docs/
Hornback was the first recipient in 1976, but since then, most other recipients have not been involved with the Ethical Society. Recent recipients include: Dr. L. Lewis Wahl, Joan Suarez, Leon “Bud” Deraps; Kingdom House; Judge Richard Teitelman; Joan Lipkin; Dr. Fred Rottnek; Dr. Suszanne Singer, Kris Krehmeyer and Eddie Mae Binion.
The award will be presented on Sunday, Sept. 29 in ceremonies at the Ethical Society, located at 9001 Clayton Road.
