The Ethical Humanist of the Year 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 in their approach to community concerns. One nominee from the extended St. Louis community is selected each year to receive the award, which carries an honorarium of $1000.
Highlight Ethical Humanism and recognize a deserving individual or organization by nominating them for this prestigious award. The Humanist of the Year Committee seeks nominations for the 2012 award. The 2012 honoree joins such luminaries as our own Bud Deraps and last year’s recipient, immigrant rights activist, Joan Suarez. Please visit the Ethical Society website Ethical Humanist of the Year page for complete nomination details.
The deadline for submissions is Friday, June 29. The award ceremony will be held on Sunday, September 30, 2012. If you have any questions, please direct them to Humanist of the Year Committee Chair, Eileen Pacino at (314) 330-3279.
