“I’m very excited at the opportunity to speak at this year’s luncheon,” Hyde said. “We have such extraordinary people in our region, and I’ve been privileged to be a part of recognizing them in this format for so many years. To be asked to speak at this year’s event is especially meaningful given my connection and the history of standout speakers and celebrating the milestone of inducting the 25th class. It should be a lot of fun!”
