2019 Honoring Hometown Heroes

October 18, 2019: Michael Angelo’s Winery in Richfield, Ohio

The FBI Cleveland Citizens Academy Alumni Association is a nonprofit public service organization focused on creating safer communities across Northeast Ohio and promoting a greater understanding and support of the FBI. We achieve our mission, in part, by improving understanding and encouraging appreciation of law enforcement among citizens and community leaders.

The FBICLECAAA believes it is important to promote awareness of local heroes who have performed selfless acts in the interest of others. The annual Honoring Hometown Heroes event was established by the FBICLECAAA to provide recognition of incredible individuals in four categories:

  1. Safety Forces Hero
  2. Citizen Hero
  3. Unsung Hero
  4. Community Leader Hero

This year’s Keynote Speaker will be Command Sergeant Major (CSM) Ret. Michael T. Hall.

CSM Hall is a decorated combat veteran with over 34 years of service to the US Army and Special Operations. He has decades of real-world experience relating to special operations, counter-insurgencies, asymmetrical and irregular warfare. Hall served over 20 years with the 75th Ranger Regiment and is the only soldier to have held the senior enlisted position at the Ranger Regiment, the Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC), and the United States Army Special Operations Command (USASOC). After retirement from the Army, he took this experience and applied it to coaching and mentoring executives at organizations including The Lockheed Martin Company and The McChrystal Group, as an independent consultant and coach to several CEO’s, and as Chief of Staff, North American Sales, at the Scotts Miracle Gro Company. Hall possesses an extensive awards portfolio reflecting stellar job performance, team building efforts, high quality standards, and profound impact in achieving organizational goals and objectives.
