The SAE Foundation will hold its annual celebration on Tuesday, May 24, at the Masonic Temple in Detroit. The evening will feature remarks by Michigan Governor Rick Snyder.
Other highlights of the celebration will include award presentations, along with a unique VIP tour, sponsors reception and guest networking reception where local students present exhibits from their participation in SAE International’s award-winning STEM education programs – A World In Motion (AWIM), F1 in Schools and the Collegiate Design Series.
During the celebration, Mark Fields, president and CEO of Ford Motor Co, will be honored with the 2016 SAE Foundation Industry Leadership Award.
In addition to the Industry Leadership Award, the SAE Foundation also will present its annual Young Industry Leadership Award; the Ableson Award for Visionary Leadership; and the Gordon Millar award, sponsored by AVL.
Proceeds from this annual fundraiser benefit the SAE Foundation, the charitable arm of SAE International. The SAE Foundation aims to address one of the most pressing issues facing industry today – the decline of students enrolling in science and technology programs – by providing programs that bring math and science to life and sow the seeds of endless possibilities for today’s students from Pre-K to university.
