Thomas More Awards NKY Chamber with Saints Salute

CRESTVIEW HILLS, Ky. (Jan. 31, 2020) — Thomas More University awarded the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce (NKY Chamber) with a Saints Salute yesterday evening during the Saints’ basketball double header against the University of Pikeville in the Connor Convocation Center.

A Saints Salute is a special recognition of the University’s community partners. The NKY Chamber received the fifth salute distributed by Thomas More. The salute was presented during half time of the women’s basketball game to Brent Cooper, president and CEO of the NKY Chamber, by President Joseph Chillo, LP.D. NKY Chamber leaders were also honored on the court during the presentation of the award.

“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.
