BASF’s Pennington honored for achievements past and present

By |  September 27, 2017 0 Comments

Willie Pennington, BASF turf and ornamental sales representative for North and South Carolina, was inducted into the Tuskegee University Athletic Hall of Fame as one of their athletic legends. The ceremony, which was held on Sept. 15, recognizes Pennington’s achievements on the gridiron as an offensive guard. Pennington was a vital team member whose abilities helped lead the Golden Tigers to back-to-back-to-back SAIC Championships (1967, 1968 and 1969).

He earned his degree in chemistry education in 1970, and in 2017 celebrated 45 years with BASF. He received an extended standing ovation at the BASF National Business Conference in August, where his contributions to the company were recognized, according to a press release.

BASF calls Pennington a “well-known and highly regarded professional who values friendship and respect, and brings warmth and trust to every relationship: on the field, in the office, and on the road and at home.”

Pennington resides in Raleigh, N.C., with his wife Aris.
