SPARTANBURG, S.C., Dec. 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Tindall Corporation Vice President of Human Resources Donnie Brown has been recognized with the Founders Award from the Southern Association of Colleges and Employers, the most prestigious award the organization can bestow on one of its members.
To be considered for the award, the individual must have been active and contributed significantly in the development of programs, participated in extensive leadership roles, contributed in an innovative way to the development of the profession and/or otherwise represented the association in an exemplary manner.
The award is given only when the Board of Directors deems there to be a deserving recipient and is not an annual award. In fact, only two other people have received this award since 2007.
“I’m quite certain all of the attributes for the award were readily seen in Donnie by all those who have worked with him in this association,” said Greg Force, Tindall president and COO. “We are truly fortunate to have such a dedicated and outstanding individual among our ranks.”
