Medal Breakfast

It takes the legacy of many hands to build a community. Since 1945, the Onondaga Historical Association Medal Award has recognized distinguished contributions to the cause of preserving and interpreting Onondaga County history.

The OHA Medal is the highest honor that this organization can bestow upon an individual for contributions made to the cause of preserving and interpreting our heritage. Since OHA is the only general comprehensive history organization in this community, one might also consider this medal the highest tribute that can be awarded on behalf of the entire Onondaga County community to those who ensure history remains a vital part of our future.

We are pleased to announce that the 2022 Medal honorees are Jeff and Susan Bastable, The University Neighborhood Preservation Association, and Kyle Bass, playwright. 

We honoed this year’s Medal recipients on May 26th at the The Oncenter Nicholas J. Pirro Convention Center. The Medal ceremony was a great success, and pictures from the event can be found here!
