30th Anniversary Founders Award Dinner
June 10, 2019 @ 6:00 PM - 10:00 PM
What makes a great leader? They possess passion and purpose, as well as empathy, dedication to a mission, and openness to new ideas. In addition to these qualities, great leaders are often forged through challenges. Over the past 30 years the Chairs of the Historic House Trust (HHT) have embodied all of these leadership traits– qualities that helped them steer a collection of largely neglected, decaying City-owned historic sites toward a brighter future. Despite obstacles, these intrepid leaders prevailed and 23 remarkable sites no flourish as centers of culture and education, bringing history to life for hundreds of thousands of local schoolchildren and other visitors.
HHT will honor the exemplary leadership of these former Chairs:
Timothy C. Forbes (1989-1994)| Cynthia C. Wainwright(1994-1997)
Robert C. Quinlan (1997-2000)| Deborah Krulewitch (2000-2009)
Franny Eberhart (2006-2012)| John C. Gustafsson (2012-2018)
Myra Biblowit and Adrian Benepe Honorary Co-Chairs
