Milwaukee, Wis.—Retired A. O. Smith Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Paul Jones and his wife, Patricia, have received the 2017 Emilie Vogel Nunnemacher Award from Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin.  

The honor was presented to the couple last evening during a special awards ceremony at the Pfister Hotel.  

The award is presented annually to individuals who embody the spirit of innovation in their philanthropy to CHW.  The award is named in honor of philanthropist and board member Emelie Vogel Nunnemacher, who began advocating for children in 1894, the year Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin was founded.

Paul and Pat Jones have been generous donors to Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin since they moved to Milwaukee in 2004.  

“Paul and Pat Jones have been committed to our community for many years, and this award is just another example of that commitment,” Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Ajita G. Rajendra said.  “One of A. O. Smith’s core values is good corporate citizenship, and Paul and Pat certainly personify that philosophy.  On behalf of everyone at A. O. Smith, I want to congratulate them on this well-deserved honor.”
