  • Keynote Address by Joe Scantlebury, Senior Policy Officer in the United States Program Advocacy Division, The Gates Foundation.

This year’s Glorifying the Lions program is underwritten by a generous grant from Fifth Third Bank. The Bank also provides support for the Joan R. Herschede Scholarship which is awarded annually to a University of Cincinnati student.
