The Evansville Rotary Club presented the annual award to Bob Jones

A former president and CEO of Old National Bank has won this year’s Rotary Civic Award. WNIN’s John Gibson has details:

The Rotary Club of Evansville says Bob Jones won the 2024 award.

Jones is a long time civic leader. He helped bring the Stone Family Center and the Double Tree Hotel to Downtown Evansville.

Jones was also instrumental in developing the COVID-19 Crisis Response Fund.

He’s also a longtime supporter of WNIN.

Jones is currently the Chairman of the Board at the University of Evansville.

The Rotary Club works hard to keep the Civic Award winner a secret before the announcement at its luncheon.

Jones said he was surprised by Tuesday’s announcement.
