How did Promise get its name?

In July 2014, Fifth Third Bank hosted a contest to name the young falcon that was banded and released back into the wild. Community members sent in their suggestions, and a committee made the final decision of “Promise,” submitted by the Fuller Family. The family says, “This name pays homage to the Kalamazoo Promise and gives the bird’s name a distinct Kalamazoo connection, honoring its birthplace no matter where it may end up. It also speaks to the promise of more peregrines in Kalamazoo for years to come. . .”
