Prescient has worked closely with the Pat Tillman Foundation (“PTF”) over the past several years and looks forward to celebrating at their November 4th Tillman Honors event.
Prescient is extremely proud of its partnership with the Chicago-based Pat Tillman Foundation and wholeheartedly supports its mission to unite and empower remarkable military service members, veterans, and spouses to become the next generation of public and private sector leaders committed to service beyond self.
“While our Chicago team has worked with PTF on a variety of projects over the past few years, I believe our relationship is just getting started,” said Prescient President & CEO Jack McKenna. “We cherish our partnership with the foundation and are committed to promoting its efforts, as military veterans have been a part of the Prescient family since our founding.”
The foundation honors the legacy of Pat Tillman, a former NFL star who enlisted in the U.S. Army following the September 11th Attacks and was tragically killed in action in Afghanistan in 2004. Today, PTF identifies remarkable military service members, veterans, and spouses, empowering them with academic scholarships, lifelong leadership development opportunities, and a diverse, global community of high-performing mentors and peers. These “scholars” make an impact as they lead through action in the fields of healthcare, business, public service, STEM, education, and the humanities.
McKenna and Due Diligence Associate Director, Asha Underiner, will join Tillman Scholars, supporters, and foundation staff to honor Afghan politician and women’s rights activist, Fawzia Koofi, and the Tillman Scholars behind the effort to evacuate Afghan allies, known as Digital Dunkirk. The event will take place in Chicago on Thursday, Nov. 4 from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. CST and will be livestreamed via YouTube Live at TillmanHonors.com. Koofi will be presented with the 2021 Champion Award for her advocacy for peace and women’s rights in Afghanistan and beyond. Koofi was the first girl in her family to go to school and the first woman to serve as deputy speaker of Afghanistan’s parliament. More information on her accomplishments can be found in the foundation’s recent press release detailing the event.
