Yamaha Marine Group said today that it was named the recipient of the Tennessee Board of Regents Chancellors Award for Excellence in Philanthropy.

The award recognizes Yamaha’s contributions to the Motorcycle and Marine Service Program at the Tennessee College of Applied Technology Chattanooga.

The company also received the 2017 Silver Star of Excellence from the American Technical Education Association and the National Technical Honor Society in recognition of its contribution to the Motorcycle and Marine Service Program.

“Recipients of the Chancellors Award for Excellence in Philanthropy are selected based on their generous donation of resources to a Tennessee Board of Regents institution,” Tennessee Board of Regents chancellor Flora W. Tydings said in a statement.

“Yamaha Marine’s body of work over the last 14 years with the Tennessee College of Applied Technology Chattanooga, and especially in the last five years with donations totaling more than $150,000, reflects the true spirit of the Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in Philanthropy.”

The Silver Star of Excellence is awarded to a business in recognition of contributions to technical education, such as donations of equipment, facilities, training, financial assistance and support such as internships, apprenticeships and advisory committee members.
