For Immediate Release

Cleveland, OH - Like so many others, the Cleveland International Hall of Fame (CIHF) had to cancel the 2020 and 2021 induction ceremonies due to the pandemic. But it is back and will be very special.

The 2022 CIHF induction ceremony will be held at Windows on the River on Tuesday June 7, 2022. Doors open at 5 with dinner and program at 6PM. TV3 anchor Russ Mitchell will be the MC and Bishop Edward Malesic will give the invocation and share his ethnic heritage story.

The 2022 honorees are:

  • Anda Cook, (Latvian)
  • Carl Robson, (Ethiopian community)
  • Victor Ruiz, (Puerto Rican)
  • Taras Szmagala, (Ukrainian)
In addition, we will recognize the 2020 inductees who missed out on their ceremony due to Covid.
  • May Chen (Chinese)
  • Margaret Lynch (Irish)
  • Valarie McCall (African-American)
  • Ramesh Shah (Indian)
  • Berj Shakarian (Armenian)

There will be special guests, music and an opportunity to sponsor Afghan, Ukrainian and other refugees and students to the event. Ethnic attire is encouraged.

About the Cleveland International Hall of Fame

The Cleveland International Hall of Fame is a 501c3 non-profit that was established by ClevelandPeople.Com in 2010 to permanently recognize those individuals who have made a valuable and lasting contribution to our multicultural city and region and to inspire a new generation of leaders. The inductees of the CIHF have represented dozens of cultures and include many familiar names (Sam Miller, George Voinovich, Monte Ahuja, Albert Ratner, Jose Feliciano, Margaret Wong, Rev. Otis Moss Jr., Alex Machaskee and so on) as well as lesser-known people who have also made important contributions.
