UPS announced that Myron Gray, President, U.S. Operations, is the recipient of the Charles Collins Distinguished Trustee award from the National Urban League for his service and mentorship upholding the work and ideals of the National Urban League.

Presenting at the Whitney M. Young, Junior Awards Gala on July 28, 2017, Mr. Gray spoke on his involvement and impact with the National Urban League.

“This award is possible because of the tireless efforts of my fellow National Urban League Board Members and all of the volunteers, staff, donors and friends who give unselfishly to change people’s lives for the better,” said Gray. “Thank you to the National Urban League for this honor, and most importantly, for being the powerful change agent your organization is today.”

The Charles Collins award was created more than ten years ago to commemorate its namesake’s distinctive service and commitment to the work and ideals of the National Urban League.

“Myron Gray has always been a supportive partner and outstanding thought leader,” said Marc H. Morial, president and CEO, National Urban League. “He chairs the Programs Committee of the National Urban League Board of Trustees and has served on the National Urban League Board of Director's Executive Committee. He continuously mentors other Trustees while also remaining a diligent supporter of the overall mission of the National Urban League.”

The National Urban League is one of UPS’s most enduring partnerships, spanning more than 56 years. UPS supports the National Urban League through leadership engagement, local chapter board service, employee volunteerism and with The UPS Foundation programmatic support. UPS has provided $22 million in funding to the National Urban League to support the organization’s Entrepreneurship Centers, conference and capacity building initiatives. Mr. Gray has been on the National board since 2010.
