The Air General Scholarship Committee was pleased and enthused by the caliber of students who participated in the 3rd annual Robert M Maloney Memorial Scholarship Program.

Each year we award $10,000 after a competition among college-age children of our employees. The money is designated to be used strictly for tuition.  We interviewed some very talented and intelligent young people, and the selection of one deserving candidate was very difficult.

Ashley de la Torre, daughter of Sandra De La Torre who has worked for Air General in IAH for the past five years is our winner for 2016!

Ashley attends Texas A & M University in Kingsville.  A member of the National Honor Society, she has an impressive resume of community involvement and extra-curricular activities and plans to pursue a career in Veterinarian Medicine.

We are also pleased to share a thank you note from Ashley after she received the scholarship:

“I just wanted to thank you for the scholarship your company provides. I am the recipient of the Robert M. Maloney Scholarship this year and I wanted to give my thanks. This scholarship only makes me want to keep going and push harder for what I want to accomplish. My aspiration is to become a Veterinarian and to help people and their pets recover and stay healthy. This is something I am extremely passionate about and to know that not only my family is doing everything they can to support my dream, but that your company has given me support to do so as well. Thank you for not only helping me, but others who want to succeed and follow their dreams as well. I wish I could have thanked you personally for helping my family and me. 
Thank you,
Ashley De La Torre”

We wish Ashley the best of luck  in her remaining years as an undergraduate and will expect to receive updates on her progress!

Air General Managers Meeting

Published March 18, 2016    Tagged: Corporate, Social Responsibility

MGR ORLANDO
The entire Air General Home Office and Station Manager Team

In March of this year, Air General finally had it’s first Manager meeting since 2011! The event was held in Orlando, FL and was attended by all from the Home Office as well as all our Station Managers. This event was critical do getting our managers to finally meet one another, network and socialize but also was an opportunity to exchange ideas on how to better Air General as whole and provide team building.

The event began with presentations from Chairman Robert Maloney Jr, President Patrick Maloney, VP of Business Development Donna Blanchard and VP of Operations Paul Siebols. Director of Operations Frank Keller and Manager of Training Compliance Tim Cotter followed up with a series of team building exercises and workshops on HR, finance/accounting and security best practices, as well as group exercises that focused on eliminating barriers to success.

On the final day the entire team of more than 50 from Air General helped the Osceola County Habitat for Humanity organization by assisting the group in two locations, one at a home that was recently built where our team braved the summer heat to paint and clean the new house, and the other team helped a local business clean out their warehouse, paint, and organize.

Overall this was a very successful event, and all of us at Air General are very proud of the participation of our managers and the thoughtful feedback we received throughout the event.

We are looking forward to holding this event again in another year or so and look forward to seeing more new faces at the next Managers Meeting!
