Willie Pennington, BASF turf and ornamental sales representative for North and South Carolina, is being inducted into the Tuskegee University Athletic Hall of Fame as one of their athletic legends. The ceremony, held Sept. 15, recognizes Pennington’s achievements on the football field as an offensive guard. Pennington was a vital team member whose abilities helped lead the Golden Tigers to three straight SAIC Championships from 1967-69. 
 
He earned his degree in chemistry education in 1970, and in 2017 celebrated 45 years of service with BASF. He received an extended standing ovation at the BASF National Business Conference in August, where his contributions to the company were recognized.

He is 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, on the road and at home. Pennington resides in Raleigh with his wife Aris.
