Quinn to bestow ‘Order of Lincoln’ on 7
Seven Illinoisans will receive the state’s highest honor for professional achievement and public service this year.

This year the honor goes to John Canning Jr., co-founder and chairman of Madison Dearborn Partners; Chicago native and Duke University basketball coach Michael Krzyzewski (shuh-SHEV’-skee); and Newton Minow, former Federal Communications Commission chairman and early critic of television.
Celebrated husband and wife composing team Bernard Rands and Augusta Read Thomas will be honored, along with the Rev. Donald Senior, a world-class theologian, and Glenn Tilton, chairman of Midwest for J.P. Morgan Chase and former chairman and CEO of United Airlines.
