Myra Selby Selected as Honoree for Heritage Place of Indianapolis’ Hoosier Heritage Night
June 4, 2021
Ice Miller partner Myra Selby has been selected as an honoree by Heritage Place of Indianapolis for its annual Hoosier Heritage Night. On June 23, Myra will be one of six honorees recognized for outstanding contributions to the Indianapolis community.

Other honorees include Dennis Bland, president of the Center for Leadership Development; Teresa Lubbers, Indiana Commissioner for Higher Education; David Resnik, chair of the board for Katz, Sapper & Miller; Joanna Taft, founding executive director of Harrison Center for the Arts; and Robbie Williams, associate broker at Century 21 Diversified Realty.

Heritage Place of Indianapolis is a nonprofit that provides educational, recreational, health and wellness programming to Hoosiers 55 years of age or older. For 37 years, the organization has selected a group of Indianapolis’ most significant and influential leaders to honor during its Hoosier Heritage Night event. Honorees typically represent a variety of industries such as business, education, health care, media, civic service, law and the arts.

Myra has the distinction of being both the first woman and the first African American to serve as an associate justice on the Indiana Supreme Court. From 1995-1999, she participated in several landmark decisions involving state property taxes, insurance and tort law reform. Myra also spearheaded efforts to increase the Court's accessibility to the public by expanding education and outreach activities. In 1999, the Court appointed her to chair its Commission on Race and Gender Fairness, which is charged with ensuring fairness and diversity in the legal system. Today, she continues her tradition of service to the commission as a current member, and she is also heavily involved with many other professional and civic organizations.

At Ice Miller, Myra harnesses her extensive experience as a commercial mediator and arbitrator to serve as an advisor for large institutional clients and individuals across various industry sectors. Her broad-based practice includes corporate internal investigations, appellate practice, compliance counseling, complex litigation, risk management, strategic and other legal advice. Myra is also Ice Miller’s Partner-in-Charge of Diversity and Inclusion. She is focused on ensuring the Firm is positioned to meet clients’ diversity and inclusion expectations.

Ice Miller congratulates Myra for this honor and recognizes the importance of Heritage Place of Indianapolis’ work. The Firm currently supports the organization through board service, with partner Christina Fugate serving as a current board member and immediate past president.

This year’s Hoosier Heritage Night will be a hybrid event taking place at 6 p.m. EST on Wednesday, June 23. Attendees can either attend in-person at Meridian Hills Country Club or watch the program via livestream.
