Frontier Airlines Wins Business Social Responsibility Award
DENVER, Jan. 18 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Today, Frontier Airlines (NASDAQ: FRNT) will receive the Martin Luther King, Jr. Business Social Responsibility Award: a high honor bestowed upon individual business people, corporations and non-profit organizations who have contributed to the Denver community.
Each year, the award committee rewards the nominees who best represent the spirit of the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., embracing concepts of equal opportunity for all, promotion of good will toward people and encouragement of programs which make the world a better place.
"Frontier believes strongly in the concept of corporate responsibility and we strive to instill that value in everything we do," said Frontier Manager of Community Relations, Jennifer Gunn. "While we are extremely honored to receive this award and to be mentioned in the same sentence as a great man like Martin Luther King, Jr., we are also grateful to have the opportunity to give back to the Denver community for all the support it has shown Frontier. Thank you to all the Frontier employees who helped us earn this prestigious award, and we look forward to many more years of giving back to our hometown of Denver."
The award ceremony will take place in Denver at the 23rd annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Business Social Responsibility Award Luncheon, hosted by the Marriott City Center Hotel at 11:45 a.m. Proceeds from this event will be donated to the Colorado Scholarship Coalition, who will select and award Martin Luther King, Jr. Scholarships.
