CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Four 'Great Living Cincinnatians' will be honored Thursday night during the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber's annual dinner.

The "Celebration of Legacy & Leadership" is the Chamber's annual dinner recognizing the newest Great Living Cincinnatians and Julie Janson for her service to the organization in 2012. During the event, the Chamber will also publicly install Kay Geiger as 2013 Chamber Chair.

Thomas G. Cody, Edwin J. Rigaud, Richard H. Rosenthal and Phyllis J. Weston are all being honored.

The Great Living Cincinnati honor has been presented annually since 1967. Leadership, vision, tenacity and love of community are hallmarks shared by the recipients, who are chosen for their community service, business and civic attainment, awareness of the needs of others and distinctive accomplishments that bring favorable attention to the region.

"The Great Living Cincinnatian Award is the preeminent regional honor, and these four very worthy recipients join 131 prior honorees as the who's who of Cincinnati's leaders," said Ellen van der Horst, president and CEO of the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber. "Members of the class of 2013 have enjoyed tremendous professional success, and they enhanced our region by advocating change and growth — particularly at some of our most respected institutions. They are true life-sized heroes and we are delighted to spotlight their accomplishments and contributions."
