News & Updates

  • Cara Adams' Leadership Academy Induction

    Hello, again, folks:

          Good news, bad news:  The Akron Urban League (AUL) finally gave me  permission to post its attached *.pdf with the details of Cara's award ceremony (you will also find it in the Resources section).  This is the good news.  However, the bad news is that seems to not permit me to post any file larger than 10 MB, and only of certain types (*.mp4 files not included).  So, the AUL audiovisual *.mp4 file of Cara introducing herself and her background is too big (~123 MB) and not of an allowable type for me to post.  It is a wonderful video, and an excellent resource to show young ladies interested in STEM careers.  I would like to share it with anyone interested.  Just email me, at, and we can arrange to get it in your hands.

  • Cara Adams inducted into Akron Urban League's Academy of Leaders

         I am so pleased to inform you that our own Ms. Cara Adams has been inducted into the Akron Urban League’s Academy of Leaders, on Friday, August 18, 2017 at the AUL’s 92nd Gala at Quaker Square.  She is currently Chief Engineer of Bridgestone Americas Motorsports and Firestone Racing.  She was one of four women inducted in the inaugural class of “Women Who Soar”, ladies leading the Akron STEM community.

         Although I have personal access to an announcement of her award and a brochure from the event, I have yet to be able to obtain permission to use any of that in our newsletter and on  So, to give you her background, I have resorted to something that IS under my control: my letter nominating her, which you should see attached.

         Congratulations, Cara!!
