Jeff Immelt ’78 will be recognized with the 2016 National Football Foundation Legacy Award on December 6 at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City. The award was established in 2007 to honor individuals and organizations who have made extraordinary contributions to the National Football Foundation and its mission.
“Nobody better represents our mission than Jeff Immelt,” said National Football Foundation President and CEO Steve Hatchell. “A former offensive tackle at Dartmouth, he has paid tribute on countless occasions to the role football has played during his business career, and he has continuously given back to protect the game for the next generation, taking on leadership roles with our Football Matters campaign and again with the recent creation of the Congressional College Football Caucus in Washington, D.C. He has become a true ambassador for the game, and we are extremely grateful.”
