  • Auburn University Alumni Association Posts Tribute Video Profiling Apple CEO Tim Cook


    Apple’s CEO Tim Cook was profiled in a new video published by the Auburn University Alumni Association, which has recognized Cook in a Lifetime Achievement Award. Cook accepted the Lifetime Achievement Award in December, in a speech that recalled growing up in Alabama in the 1960s and seeing firsthand the “devastating impacts of discrimination.”

    Cook drew attention to Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr., two men who “sacrificed everything, including their lives, as champions of human rights and human dignity,” and has championed the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, a bill that passed the US Senate but has yet to appear before the US House of Representatives for a vote. Cook again directed attention to the legislation this week while “reflecting on the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act.”

    The Auburn Alumni Association, however, has focused its attention on Cook himself in a video that includes comments from Apple’s chief of operations Jeff Williams and Disney chief executive, Bob Iger. Both described Cook’s humility, ethics and philanthropy as defining aspects of the man who was personally recruited by Jobs in 1998 to serve as the company’s senior vice president of worldwide operations.
