For the second consecutive year, LyondellBasell (LYB), one of the world's largest plastics, chemical and refining companies, has been honored by Junior Achievement USAź (JA) with the U.S. President's Volunteer Service Award.

Aaron Miner, operations manager of LyondellBasell's Morris, Illinois, Complex, accepts the US President's Volunteer Service Award from Jack E. Kosakowski, Junior Achievement USA President and CEO, for the company's donation of more than 5,000 volunteer hours to JA programs.

The Bronze Award recognized the approximately 200 LyondellBasell employees from across the country who donated more than 5,000 volunteer hours to Junior Achievement in the 2015-2016 school year. The company also donated a total of $104,000 to the organization last year.

Aaron Miner, operations manager of LyondellBasell's Morris, Illinois, Complex, accepted the award on behalf of the company at a special event in New York. Miner participated in JA programs as a young student. Today, he serves as a JA mentor and member of the Junior Achievement of Chicago board of directors.

"Aaron Miner exemplifies the power of Junior Achievement. As a former Junior Achievement participant, Aaron received the knowledge and skills needed to plan for the future, and now he is a leader at LyondellBasell and in his community," said Bob Patel, LyondellBasell's CEO and Junior Achievement of Southeast Texas board member. "Part of our company's mission is to be a good neighbor in the communities where we operate. Our partnership with Junior Achievement provides the opportunity for our employees around the country to make a meaningful contribution that has the potential to change a student's life for the better."

President George W. Bush established the President's Council on Service and Civic Participation (the Council) in 2003 to recognize the valuable contributions volunteers make in communities and to encourage more people to serve. The Council created the President's Volunteer Service Award program as a way to thank and honor Americans who, by their demonstrated commitment and example, inspire others to engage in volunteer service. In 2006, Junior Achievement became an official certifying organization for this award, which recognizes corporations with a U.S. presence that provide volunteers to teach JA programs anywhere in the world.
