During the Saint's women's basketball double header against the University of Pikeville on Thursday, Thomas More University awarded the NKY Chamber of Commerce with a Saints Salute.
A Saints Salute is a special award for Thomas More University's community partners. The NKY Chamber is the fifth recipient of this award distributed by the university.
The award was presented by Thomas More's President Joseph Chillo to Brent Cooper, president and CEO of the NKY Chamber during half time.
Several NKY Chamber leaders were also honored on the court during the presentations.
“The NKY Chamber has been a significant community partner of the University for many years,” said President Chillo. “Honoring them with a Saints Salute is a token of our appreciation for the work they do within our community and the investment they make in Thomas More. Our campus community is greatly enhanced by the partnership and support of the NKY Chamber.”
Past Saints Salute awardees include the Cincinnati Reds, St. Elizabeth Healthcare, Republic Bank, and Alpha Delta Gamma fraternity.
