Previous recipients include Coretta Scott King, Muhammad Ali, Lee Iacocca, John Sculley, Rosa Parks, Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, Nobel Laureate Elie Wiesel and seven presidents.

The award is presented annually to U.S. citizens “who have distinguished themselves within their own ethnic groups while exemplifying the values of the American way of life.” Tanous is Lebanese American.
