The honorees include Lin-Manuel Miranda, NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace, the Spurs assistant coach Becky Harmon, chef Jose Andres and Feeding America CEO Claire Babineaux-Fontenot. Others will be recognized for “making a positive difference in their communities, culture and country.” Plans are to make it a live, in person event in future years.
