Known in the fitness industry, he shares the same qualities as all other recipients: a vision and a keen sense of business.
More than 33 years ago, none of this existed, and the surrounding River North neighborhood in downtown Chicago was almost dead.

Truman nominated Theodore Levin to become a federal judge for the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan. He graduated from the University of Chicago in 1950 and later earned his law degree from there in 1953. Career was moving forward, and a few years later in 1996, he was elected to the Illinois state senate. Patrons from the neighborhood are enjoying their morning.
