Honda Power Equipment Recognizes “Honda Hero”

Honda Power Equipment, a business unit of American Honda Motor Co., Inc., has announced its latest Honda Hero, Gary Myers of Sacramento, CA.

Honda Heroes was created to recognize individuals who perform voluntary, selfless acts, while using Honda power products to benefit others.

Myers is the fourth recipient recognized for his volunteer activities through this inspiring program.

In his free time, Myers tends to all of the school grounds of K-12 school Sacramento Adventist Academy each week by mowing all playgrounds, the baseball and football fields. Myers, a graduate of the school, works there as a bus driver and his children are alumni of the school, as well. His son, Lucas, teaches at the school and nominated his father for the Honda Hero award.

In addition, Myers donates blood on a regular basis, so much so that he is a contender for a Guinness World Records for blood donations.

Myers also established an international elementary school pen pal program where second grade students are matched with second graders in South African schools to create international relationships, share ideas, gather feedback, and gain exposure to cultures throughout the entirety of their elementary schooling. Myers is working on an international student exchange for the pen pals to attend a formal program graduation together in California at the conclusion of the program.

As part of his recognition, Myers received a $1,000 gift from Honda Power Equipment. Naturally, he is already considering how he can use the gift to help others.
