“Savannah’s Akron-born roots and passion for improving the local community made her a natural choice to christen Wingfoot Two,” said Goodyear Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President Richard J. Kramer. “Goodyear has a long-standing tradition of enlisting strong, accomplished women to christen our iconic airships, and we are proud to welcome Savannah to the family.”

Lesa France Kennedy (2006) are among those who have christened a Goodyear blimp. Robin Roberts, award-winning co-anchor of ABC’s “Good Morning America,” served as the most recent christener, of Wingfoot One in 2014.
“I feel absolutely honored to be a part of this christening,” said James. “With Goodyear being so much a part of Akron and our Foundation always wanting to better our community, I feel like it is a perfect match. Goodyear means so much to our community, and we feel a sense of gratitude to be part of this amazing event.”

Tyson Foods is proud to partner with two of Chicago’s preeminent non-profits – the Chicago Urban League and Greater Chicago Food Depository – for this one-year campaign that aims to raise awareness about hunger and nutrition through large scale protein donations, thought leadership exercises, community engagement events and hunger education opportunities.
The KNOW Hunger initiative is entering its fourth year of partnership with National Urban League, having started in Mississippi, spent two years in Nashville, Tennessee before making its way to Chicago. Throughout KNOW Hunger’s tenure, the program has impacted thousands of members of the community, key influencers and elected officials that together have worked to educate the community on the perils of hunger.

We want to give back to the community any way we can.”
