On May 31, 2007, I became one of the 41 Southwest Airlines Employees to be recognized for the work we've done in the community as representatives for the Company. I was a Co-Recipient of the Share the Spirit Award for 2006 along with fellow Aircraft Mechanic Dale Dixon, for our work with the Tuskegee Airmen organization. Southwest Airlines has been supporting Tuskegee Airmen Inc. for several years and has now chosen Tuskegee Airmen Inc. as one of its Charities to Consider for our Employees. I know I speak for Dale when I say that we are honored to have received this award and are so appreciative of the support Southwest Airlines has given to the Tuskegee Airmen organization. Southwest Airlines is also a major sponsor for The 36th Annual Tuskegee Airmen, Inc. National Convention which will be held in the Dallas/ Ft. Worth area on August 21-25, 2007.
Congratulations to the other 2006 Share the Spirit Award winners and keep up the good work in your owncommunities.
