The Savannah Airport Commission held a special ceremony and luncheon today honoring Mr. Bernard Wright who retired December 31, 2011 after over 33 years of service. Mr. Wright’s career with the Airport started in 1978 when he was hired as a Laborer. Since that time he has served in a variety of supervisory and management roles and upon his retirement was serving as Director of Airport Operations.
“Bernard was a loyal and steadfast employee of the Savannah Airport Commission and his vast knowledge of airport operations, and the Airport itself, will be missed,” said Patrick Graham, Executive Director of The Commission. He continued, “His commitment to our customers, airport tenants, and employees was always evident.”
During the ceremony, a bronze plaque was unveiled proclaiming the Bernard A. Wright Airport Operations Complex, named in honor of his years of loyal service.
