Former winners include Senator Richard Lugar; Congressman Lee Hamilton; Governors Mitch Daniels and Robert Orr; Mayor William Hudnut; Jim Morris; K.P. Singh; Sidney Taurel; Christel DeHaan, the late Rev. Fr. Boniface Hardin and Dr. Martin Jischke, among others. The 2013 award recipient was Mark Miles, CEO of Hulman & Company.

“The Mayor and Mrs. Ballard were the unanimous selection by The International Center’s Board of Directors as our 2014 International Citizen of the Year honorees,” said Michael Overdorf, board chairman. “They embody, through their values and their actions, a spirit of cultural diversity and inclusiveness; of global leadership; and of the mutual benefits of global trade and investment. We look forward to bringing together friends of The International Center and champions of the Ballards to honor them for their substantial achievements.”
