A letter from Herb Kelleher more than 20 years ago began my involvement with the Southwest LUV Classic & Party. The passion for the event, which benefits children’s charities, grew for my colleagues and me over the years—we went from simply golfing in the tournament to becoming sponsors so that we could invest directly! Two years ago, our connection to the Southwest LUV Classic & Party and one of this year’s recipients, the Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC), grew even stronger.

One of the things I enjoy about my career at Southwest Airlines is endless opportunities for learning and growth. I am proud to be a participant in one of these transformative opportunities, the Manager in Training Program (MIT), a dynamic learning experience for top-performing Managers, Supervisors, and Team Leaders. I’ve enjoyed every aspect of the program, but the Servant’s Heart project is something I’m especially proud to have been a part of.

When our founder launched FlightAware in 2005, he wanted to provide a tool for fellow pilots and AV geeks to track live flights (at the time, there was no publicly available way of doing so). I don’t think he ever guessed 12 years later, we would be tracking sharks on our maps—but that’s exactly what happened when we partnered with Southwest Airlines to help promote Shark Week!

Shortly after turning 50, I wanted to do something fun for my 50s. I wanted to travel, I wanted to write, I wanted to meet new people … and I wanted to barefoot water ski.

 

Out of all those passions, a quest was born. I wanted to barefoot water ski in all 50 states! I was going to give myself a full 10 years to complete the quest and enjoy every aspect of it.

Our fourth annual Southwest Summer Camp is underway, and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome over 160 campers (who are dependents of Southwest Employees) to our Headquarters this week! Additionally, we are hosting a few students from GenHERation and a few students whose nationally-recognized science experiment was sent to space. Most of these campers aren’t of legal voting age yet, but they just might be future Southwest Employees. In fact, that’s kind of the point.

My daughter’s high school robotics team competed at the World Championship in Houston recently, and they specifically chose to leave competition early so they would be home in time to celebrate their Senior Prom. All was going according to plan and spirits were high until they learned that their flight had a five hour delay which would put them home mere minutes before prom was to begin. Would senior prom be ruined? Not a chance with Southwest!
