Chick-fil-A Foundation Names Posse Atlanta a “True Inspiration”

Rodney Bullard, the vice president of community affairs and executive director of the Chick-fil-A Foundation

Posse Atlanta is honored to be one of the recipients of the Chick-fil-A Foundation’s inaugural True Inspiration Awards. Recognized for its programming dedicated to the development of emerging leaders, Posse Atlanta received a $50,000 grant.

“Receiving the True Inspiration Award is a great honor,” says Posse Atlanta Director Zenith N. Houston. “The Chick-fil-A Foundation’s focus on youth education and leadership development makes them an ideal partner for Posse.”

Nominations for the True Inspiration Award were collected from Chick-fil-A operators and community foundations from across the country. Twenty-five organizations were recognized in three categories: innovative education, emerging leader development, and youth entrepreneurship.

“Posse Atlanta is an inspiration—exactly the kind of organization the True Inspiration Awards was created to celebrate,” said Rodney Bullard, the vice president of community affairs and executive director of the Chick-fil-A Foundation. “The Chick-fil-A Foundation established the grant program to honor the memory of our late founder, S. Truett Cathy, a generous entrepreneur with a special love for children and their futures. We believe that championing the work of local organizations doing meaningful and effective work with youth, education, and leadership is one of the wisest investments we can make.”

The Chick-fil-A Foundation, which hosted Posse Atlanta’s 2014 Winter Career Day, will honor Posse Atlanta and the other True Inspiration Award winners at a gala in September 2015.
