The Cleveland Heritage Medal is bestowed upon individuals whose significant contributions through leadership, collaboration and service have left an indelible mark on all spheres of the Cleveland community.

But for these extraordinary men and women, the magnificent story and history of Cleveland would not be what it is today.
