The Upper Arlington Wall of Honor program provides an opportunity to reflect on our community’s blessings by identifying and recognizing the many talented former residents who were dedicated to their community, the region or beyond, with outstanding achievements in the arts, professions, politics, science, education, sports, religion, commerce, philanthropy, public service or other notable field.
Past honorees have included cancer activists and community volunteers Stefanie Spielman and Cindy Dyas, Wendy’s founder Dave Thomas, former Ohio Governor James A. Rhodes, women’s rights activist Mary Egerton Miller, King G. Thompson and Benjamin S. Thompson who founded Upper Arlington, OSU football coach Wayne Woodrow (Woody) Hayes, and Dr. Bertha Bouroncle, who played a lead role identifying and developing treatment for a form of leukemia.
Nominations are being accepted for the 2020 Wall of Honor, now through Friday, January 10, 2020. If you know of a deceased Upper Arlington resident whose professional, philanthropic, volunteer or public service significantly impacted Upper Arlington and the greater community, please consider nominating them for this prestigious community program.
The 2020 recipient will be announced in February and recognized at a special ceremony on Sunday, May 17, at which time a bronze plaque in their honor will be added to the limestone wall of the Municipal Services Center Plaza.
