SOUTHWEST AIRLINES PRESIDENT PRAISES NWHM
Southwest Airlines President Colleen Barrett is a long-time supporter of the National Women’s History Museum. NWHM profiled Ms. Barrett on our website in April when she was named as the recipient of the 2007 Tony Jannus Award in recognition of her contributions to the commercial aviation industry. Ms. Barrett graciously acknowledged our news item:
I was humbled to have been selected as a recipient of the Tony Jannus Award, and your inclusion of this honor on your web site has made an exciting event even more so! To the extent that I can serve as a role model for young women who seek to achieve through service to others, I am honored and gratified. Thanks again for including this milestone on your web site, and—even more importantly—for the worthwhile work you do on behalf of women everywhere.
NWHM thanks Colleen Barrett for her kind words about the Museum. We feel privileged to count such an accomplished woman among our supporters.
