2017 Two-Headed Calf Awards

March 30, 2017, 6 p.m.

thc

The awards, which honor Northern Kentuckians for significant accomplishments in the areas of history, education and community service, are named for the museum’s most notorious and fun exhibit: a preserved two-headed calf. The calf symbolizes that, very often, true excellence rests with those who demonstrate achievement beyond a single contribution. Just as two heads are better than one, so, too, is the service of the people these awards honor.
The 2017 recipients are:
Michael J. Hammons
Service to the Community: Generosity and Vision

Dave Schroeder
Service to History: Scholarship and Public Service

Terri Cox-Cruey
Service to Learning: Academic Excellence and Innovation

Matt and Rebekah Gensler Butler

The Hills of Kentucky Dulcimer Club
Special Recognition: Education

Sponsored in part by Thomas More College

 

About the Two-Headed Calf Awards:

Behringer-Crawford Museum in Devou Park is serious about its mission as “a center for the collection, presentation, study and enjoyment of our natural, cultural, and visual and performing arts heritage” – and serious about its exhibits that capture Northern Kentucky’s story.

But the museum has always had a good sense of fun, too. And perhaps nothing symbolizes that good humor more than the museum’s taxidermic prize, the two-headed calf. So, in the spirit of both serious devotion to the mission of the museum and BCM’s reputation as a fun place to visit, we annually present “Two-Headed Calf Community Service Awards” to three Northern Kentuckians with outstanding contributions to the preservation and celebration of local history, art and culture.

Typically awards celebrate one exceptional achievement. The fastest runner wins the race. The most talented violinist is awarded the gold medallion. Behringer-Crawford Museum’s Two-Headed Calf Awards recognize that very often, true excellence rests with those who demonstrate achievement beyond a single contribution. Just as two heads are better than one, so, too, is the service of the people these awards honor.
