There has been a steady landing of good news at the Millington Regional Jetport lately.
Employees, officials and members of the city of Millington are anticipating the opening of the Flight Training school near the main terminal on April 1.
But those affiliated with the Millington Regional Jetport and Millington Airport Authority have spent the past few days celebrating Executive Director Roy Remington’s winning the 2015 Airport Manager of the Year presented by the Tennessee Division of Aeronautics.
Remington picked up the award March 19 in Nashville during the Tennessee Airport Conference.
“I was blown away, just incredible,” Remington said. “It was a surprise. I didn’t find out until the award ceremony.”
Remington is a 2001 graduate of Bolton High School and later earned his degree from St. Louis University. The Shelby County native joined the Millington Airport Authority in July 2013.
