'Education is the most important tool a young person can use to shape his or her future,' Owens said. 'Historically, education has not always been easily accessible for Black youth, but through UNCF, it can be.'

HNO sponsored the event alongside ITW, American Airlines, AllState, Chicago Cubs, ComEd, Hyatt, NBC 5 Chicago, US Bank, Peoples Gas, The Chicago Defender, McDonald's Corporation, Northwestern and Legacy Sponsors/NBA stars Anthony Davis, Tim Hardaway, Jr. and Derrick Rose.

Presented by UNCF Chicago, the annual 'A Mind Is…'® Gala is one of the city's signature fundraising and social events of the year. Its name reflects the organization's widely recognized trademark, ‟A mind is a terrible thing to waste.' ®

Owens is the author of the revolutionary book 'Burn Fuel Better' and is on a mission to educate the industrial world about the dangers of black carbon and changes we can make to reduce black carbon emissions.

'People, young and old, can benefit from learning about black carbon,' Owens said. 'I call upon young people to use that knowledge to become an agent for change.'
