Today, Southwest is celebrating National Shark Awareness Day! We have had waves of excitement with the debut of our larger-than-life Shark Week-themed aircraft. With Shark Week airing on July 23, we’re taking some time to celebrate and appreciate the five shark species swimming through the skies with us!

We are proud to be involved in the Dallas Independent School District (Dallas ISD)’s cohort of collegiate academies—part of the district’s collegiate academy expansion with the Dallas County Community College District (DCCCD). Specifically, we’re excited to be involved with North Dallas High School in our hometown. North Dallas High School is one of 10 new collegiate academies that will launch next school year. Students who attend collegiate academies can earn up to 60 hours of college credit or an associate degree–at no cost to them–while earning a high school diploma.
As leaders chart a new course for the nation, Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute (CHCI) President and CEO Domenika Lynch reflects on the importance of the near 40-year-old organization and its mission to provide critical educational and leadership opportunities for young Latinos while diversifying government at every level.

Connecting people to what’s important in their lives! It’s what we do at Southwest. I recently had the pleasure of hosting a delegation for a behind-the-scenes tour and day of learning for the Greater Memphis Chamber of Commerce’s SoundCheck program at our corporate headquarters. As a sponsor of the Greater Memphis Chamber, Southwest offered this opportunity to support SoundCheck’s purpose of providing these young leaders with access to top business leaders, the opportunity to stay in-the-know, and participate in initiatives that are moving Memphis forward.
