Shining the Spotlight on Robert D. Billington, Ed.D., 2008 recipient of the Tom Roberts Prize for Creative Achievement in the Humanities

The Tom Roberts Prize for Creative Achievement in the Humanities is given to an individual or group whose work blends the wisdom and methods of th humanities in an inventive, original, and imaginative way, and is distinguished by public appeal. Dr. Billington's appeal has been proven with many diverse audiences, from local merchants and manufacturers to world leaders. He has accepted awards from the Pawtucket Foundation as well as the United Nations World Tourism Organization, where he was presented with the Ulysses Prize (considered the Nobel Prize of the tourism industry).

From his cabinetmaking days in the family business to his role as founder of the award-winning Blackstone Valley Tourism Council and creator of the Sustainable Tourism Planning and Development Laboratory, Dr. Billington has acquired a broad spectrum of knowledge, talents, and approaches.

We embrace his visionary thinking, applaud his ability to communicate the value of the humanities with an engaging flair, and celebrate his many achievements.
