Schworer served the Northern Kentucky community both as a volunteer on various boards and as an attorney in the Florence, Ky., office of Frost Brown Todd, where he specialized in environmental law. Schworer was a long-time volunteer for the NKY Chamber, serving on the Board of Directors for six years, and, most recently, as a member of the finance committee. He led the NKY Chamber’s Total Resource Campaign, served as Treasurer of the Board and was a leading voice for the business community regarding environmental issues.
“We are proud to present Phil Schworer with the NKY Community Award,” Cooper said. “For several years, Phil has supported the NKY Chamber’s mission and initiatives as a member of the board while also serving on several committees. Many don’t realize it, but Phil’s efforts behind the scenes helped Northern Kentucky get rid of the ‘Reformulated Gas Requirement,’ which saves our community millions of dollars each year. We are pleased to honor his work and wish him well in retirement.”
