  1. 1. July E-Blast Hall of Fame Experience Has Impactful Week! The Hall of Fame Experience capped another impactful week with a lot of fun mixed in as well. The AMF would like to thank presenting partner, PNC Bank, and all of our other partners that made the eighth annual Hall of Fame Experience a success. The weeklong event highlighted the Foundation calendar and featured a host of past and present sports stars from the pro and college ranks. The event included appearances by Pro Football Hall of Famers Ted Hendricks, Bobby Mitchell, Billy Shaw, Kellen Winslow Sr. and Anthony. The Hall of Famers were joined by former Bengals Eric Ball, Jim Breech, Louis Breeden, Glenn Bujnoch, Barney Bussey, Isaac Curtis, David Fulcher, John Jackson, Dave Lapham, Max Montoya, Ken Moyer and Eric Shaw. Bengals Head Coach Marvin Lewis and offensive lineman Andrew Whitworth also played. Scholarships, Semon Award Presented at Hall of Fame Dinner The week kicked off with the Big Man on Campus Dinner thanks to the support of Furniture Fair and our wonderful host for the evening, Manor House Banquet and Conference Center. The evening had a couple of special presentations as the recipients of Anthony Muñoz Scholarship Fund and Jim Semon Impact Award were recognized. Tyra Chapple and Denaisha Thomas, both from Hughes Center High School, William Comminos from Middletown High School and Deborah LeGendre from Taylor High School were awarded $20,000 in college scholarships from the Scholarship Fund. Cincinnati Bell CEO Jack Cassidy was this year’s recipient of the Jim Semon Impact Award. Mr. Cassidy spearheaded, along with more than 50 other Cincinnati Bell “tutors,” the nationally recognized program at Taft Information Technology High School, which provides inner-city youth with the education they need to be responsible and productive citizens. He has supported the AMF and many other charitable causes in the Greater Cincinnati community. The AMF would also like to thank all of the celebrity guests who attended including Ben Utecht who sang an incredible song during the program, the amazing Hall of Fame silent auction committee and volunteers for making the dinner such a memorable event.
