The CCM community congratulates entrepreneur, philanthropist and distinguished University of Cincinnati alumnus Otto M. Budig Jr. (BBA, 1956; HonDoc, 2009) on his recent induction into the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber’s 2014 class of Great Living Cincinnatians.
The Chamber has presented this prestigious award on an annual basis since 1967. Recipients are chosen by the Chamber's senior council based on the following criteria: community service, business and civic attainment on a local, state, national or international level; leadership; awareness of the needs of others; and distinctive accomplishments that have brought favorable attention to their community, institution or organization.
This recognition ceremony came shortly after the Friends of CCM honored Budig at CCM’s annual star-studded fundraising event, A Moveable Feast, which included a very special performance of “On the Wings of a Dream” featuring all 75 current Musical Theatre majors, in honor of Budig’s significant support of the program. Composed by CCM alumnus Stephen Flaherty (BM, 1982), “On the Wings of a Dream” was originally written to celebrate the opening of the renovated CCM Village in 1999.
