LOUISVILLE, Ky. (March 21, 2001)—Bandag Inc. has donated $50,000 to the International Tire & Rubber Association´s Education Foundation. The gift is intended to fund scholarships and provide additional support for the Foundation´s educational efforts in the commercial tire retreading and related areas.
Bandag Manager of Market Research and ITRA Advisory Council Member Harrell Huneycutt presented the company´s donation during the association´s recent mid-winter meeting in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.
The grant was Bandag´s second to date. The Muscatine, Iowa-based supplier of retreading equipment and materials also donated $50,000 to the foundation in 2000.
"This is Bandag´s way of showing support for ITRA, the many fine training programs it offers, and the need for an organization like ITRA so that our industry might speak with a singular voice," Mr. Huneycutt said.
