Frank and Patricia SommerkampCINCINNATI (August 26, 2014) - The Northern Kentucky Fund of The Greater Cincinnati Foundation is delighted to present the 2014 Devou Cup to Frank and Patricia Sommerkamp. The award will be presented at the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Dinner on September 18.

The Devou Cup honors the generosity of Northern Kentuckians who make a profound difference in the quality of community life, now and into the future. Named for 19th century philanthropist William Devou, the Cup has been awarded to exemplary philanthropic leaders since 2004.

The list of Frank’s and Pat’s professional, civic, and philanthropic leadership roles in Northern Kentucky is as prestigious as it is long. Prior to being a business professor at Thomas More College, Pat consulted to organizations on mission development, strategic planning, job design, and program development. Frank was the first chair of Forward Quest (the predecessor to Vision 2015). He helped build a common agenda and road map for Northern Kentucky, leading it to become one of the first communities to embrace the value of regional vision. The Northern Kentucky Fund of GCF – an endowment created for the permanent philanthropic support of nonprofit organizations in Kenton, Campbell, and Boone counties – is proud to be a legacy of Forward Quest and was fortunate to count the Sommerkamps among its earliest supporters.

After graduating from Thomas More College, Pat began her career as a biology teacher at Covington Catholic High School. From that beginning, she obtained masters and doctorate degrees in education and helped shape many of the region’s education initiatives. Pat was elected the first President of the Kentucky Science Teachers Association, directed Institutional Advancement at Thomas More, and led several education and training programs at General Electric (GE) Aircraft Engines. At GE, she collaborated with the University of Cincinnati’s College of Engineering to design and implement the nation’s first masters of engineering in manufacturing program, for which she earned a GE Management Award. Many awards followed, including Outstanding Women of Northern Kentucky and YWCA Career Women of Achievement honors. The Enquirer named her Woman of the Year and Thomas More alumni presented her with the Lasting Influence Award. Pat served on the Northern Kentucky Chamber’s Education/Legislative Task Force and the Judges Panel for the Scripps Howard Foundation’s scholarship program. She now chairs the Northern Kentucky Water District Board of Commissioners.

Frank retired as Vice President of Government Affairs at Cincinnati Bell, working more than four decades with the company and with AT&T. He is as well known for his regional and philanthropic leadership as he is for his business talent. His past chairmanships span industries and decades, from Forward Quest to the Thomas More College Board of Trustees, the Northern Kentucky United Way Campaign, Greater Cincinnati Convention and Visitors Bureau, Northern Kentucky Convention and Visitors Bureau, Covington Rotary Club, Kenton County Airport (board vice chair), and the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce. Frank has served on the Crestview Hills City Council for 16 years and currently helps with fundraising efforts for Covington Catholic High School, Thomas More College, and the St. Elizabeth Healthcare Foundation. He graduated from Xavier University, where he also earned a masters in business administration.

Frank and Pat have been married for 61 years and have three children: Daria Nantista, a workers compensation nurse at Parsec Inc. in Cincinnati; Tara Santry, a vice president at Staples in New Jersey; and Dr. Greg Sommerkamp, a hand surgeon in Crestview Hills. They also have ten grandchildren and one great grandchild.
