Former University of South Florida President Judy Genshaft received the Outstanding Floridian Award from the Florida Council of 100.
This is the first year the Outstanding Floridian Award has been given by the Council of 100, a nonpartisan organization of business leaders that exists to promote the economic growth of Florida. The Council of 100 works closely with the Governor and state and federal leaders to effect positive change for the citizens of Florida.
The award is given to Floridians who have demonstrated extraordinary achievement and contribution to the State of Florida and its citizens. Recipients must reflect true service, above and beyond the call of duty, that has resulted in extraordinary achievement on a consistent basis and not just for a single achievement.
