This past February, Jacksonville University President Tim Cost honored filmmaker Ken Burns with the second annual Global Citizen Award. This award is presented to “an extraordinary, visionary leader whose impact is felt well beyond the bounds of their recognized responsibilities”.
B&C Financial Advisors sponsored the event, and Allan & Kathy Cohen attended with B&C clients Dr. Judy Solano, Miss Jean Francis, Dr. & Mrs. Dan Maruniak, Mr. & Mrs. Vincent DePorre, and Ms. Karen Weimar. Guests got the chance to hear Ken Burns speak as well as see previews of his upcoming films The Emperor of All Maladies, Jackie Robinson and Vietnam.
Allan, a JU alumnus, especially enjoyed President Cost’s dedication to enriching the experience of JU’s students. Each table at the event had ten seats, nine seats for guests and one seat for a JU history student. These students not only attended the event, but they were also granted a special audience with the director. Congratulations, Mr. Burns!
