August 2022
Welcome to the August addition of "Airways Insider"! This month we have a lot of things happening, including the beginning of our Trade Show Season and believe me it's going to be a hot one!

The sweltering temperatures have us all feeling the heat! With the kids starting school soon and Fall just around the corner, relief is on the way and before we know it football season will be upon us and we will be calling the Hogs!

Thank you for reading our Airways Insider and feel free to share!
Congratulations to our "Employee of the Month" Bryant Cooper!
Bryant began his employment with Airways in 2019 after many years in the food industry. Initially working in our Night Operations, Bryant has recently moved into our Domestic Services. Bryant is a local guy, graduating from Fayetteville High School and attended NWACC before arriving at Airways. 

He is well versed in logistics, very dependable and has a great team attitude.
Here's what some of his colleagues had to say:
"Bryant is and has been a great person to have in operations. He’s always on task with his nose to the grindstone working away at whatever is in front of him.

"Starting on Night Operations, he was asked to handle an array of different jobs and did so with great success. Now working in our Domestic Product division, he is learning a different angle to the operation with some added duties that will only make him a better operator. Congrats, Bryant. Very well deserved." 

~ Brock Wood, Director of Operations Trade Show Services
"Bryant has been employed for a little over 3 years and counting. I had the pleasure of having Bryant in Night operations most of that time and I am truly grateful for his positive attitude and always willing to learn and handle anything sent in his direction. 

"Bryant was also a good example to all the new hires; he was patient and understanding to anyone on the night crew. It was a great day when Bryant moved to the Domestic team! (I will get over the depression that set in on Bryant’s last shift with the Night crew). I see nothing but good things in Bryant’s future here at Airways. It was an honor to be Bryant’s Manager! Bryant has put in the hard work and Employee of the month is something he has earned." 

~ Hollis Hatch, Manager, Night Operations
