Cornelia Corbett named Tampa Civitan Club's outstanding citizen of the year

TAMPA — Cornelia Corbett was named the Tampa Metro Civitan Club's oustanding citizen of the year Monday afternoon at the Florida State Fair's governor's day luncheon.

The award, one of the most prestigious given annually in Hillsborough County, has previously gone to such luminaries as George Steinbrenner III, Al Austin and Howard Frankland.

Corbett was one of the driving forces behind the building of the new Tampa Museum of Art, which just opened Saturday.
