Each year in June, the National Fathers Day Council honors prominent and exemplary fathers from around the United States in the National Father of the Year Program. This year the celebration will be held on Thursday, June 16 in New York City. This year the distinguished honorees include:
- Coach Jim Boeheim, Head Coach, Syracuse University Men's Basketball Team
- Geoffrey Canada, President & CEO, Harlem Children's Zone
- Brendan Hoffman, President & CEO, Lord & Taylor
- Randall Stephenson, Chairman & CEO, AT&T

From sports, business and other pursuits, these fathers have contributed much to their families, communities and others. And they are exemplary in their fields.
Congratulations to these great fathers, and thanks to the National Father's Day Council for bringing us such a great program as the National Father of the Year for the last seventy years!
