Community Salute Award of Appreciation winners include: Jeffrey Dreyer, president, Canton Financial, Early Childhood Resource Center, Kent State University at Stark, and Robert L. Leibensperger, retired COO and President-Bearings, The Timken Company.
Robert L. Leibensperger is receiving an Award of Appreciation for initiating and completing a short-term activity resulting in widespread benefits to the community. Leibensperger, a longtime Canton Symphony Orchestra board member, spearheaded the Capital Campaign to build the Zimmermann Symphony Center and provide a permanent home for the Canton Symphony Orchestra. Born near Allentown, Pennsylvania, he received his Bachelor's Degree in Mechanical Engineering from Lehigh University in 1960 and a Master's Degree in Mechanical Engineering from Akron University in 1970. He started his career with The Timken Company in 1960 as a Sales Engineer but spent most of his career on the technical side of the business, eventually serving as VP Technology for 10 years. He retired in 2000 as Chief Operating Officer of the Timken Company and President-Bearings. Leibensperger was nominated by Michelle Mullaly, executive director of the Canton Symphony Orchestra.
Other award winners were: Bob Leibensperger, a former Timken Company executive who won the Arts Volunteer of the Year award for countless hours he and his wife donate tp the arts; Mercy Medical Center, which received the Business Arts Award for large companies for its many contributions to the arts; American Electric Power, the recipient of the Business Arts Award for medium companies, for its support of the SmArts program and other county art projects; and the Canton Farmer's Market, awarded for being the Most Innovative Special Project Grant for including the arts at its weekly Saturday food festival.
Belden said board member Robert Leibensperger was a driving force behind that effort, visiting hundreds of museums for information and inspiration.
Praise of the effort of such individuals as Leibensperger, retired from The Timken Co., was echoed by Ward J. "Tim" Timken, company chairman. The Timken Co. has two major displays in the exhibit - a giant bearing that demonstrates the ability of bearings to reduce friction and an old grinding machine from a Timken factory. The Timken name can be found throughout the exhibit, he noted. Calling Stark County his company's home, he told those gathered that most of The Timken Co.'s 110-year history has been spent in this community.
Car owner Bob Leibensperger, retired COO of Timken, was at the wheel.He's the kind of guy who not only apologizes for a barely noticeable whine from the rear axle but also plans to rebuild the diff in his home shop.My kind of enthusiast.
