Honeywell Engineers Veronica Ford and Zachary Page received the 2013 Black Achievers Award for their outstanding work at the Kansas City Plant and their commitment to the community.
The 37th annual Black Achiever Award Dinner was held on January 17 in Kansas City, MO. The program recognizes outstanding achievements in corporate leadership and community involvement in Kansas City.
The Black Achiever Society of Greater Kansas City provides role models for African Americans and minority youth, sharing knowledge through academic and corporate experiences. The organization partners with companies such as Honeywell FM&T, the managing and operating contractor at the Kansas City Plant, to help prepare students for college and careers in math and science.
As a special honor, Honeywell FM&T President Chris Gentile was asked to serve as the award show's emcee. The event is part of the city-wide MLK Jr. Celebration.
