EKU Aviation is pleased to announce Commander Mark Farris US Navy (Ret) as EKU-A Employee of the Year for 2014-2015. Director of Aviation, Ralph Gibbs, announced the award at the monthly flight instructor meeting on August 6. This award is given for exemplary performance toward the EKU Aviation program.

Farris, from Winchester, was selected for "exceptionally loyal service to EKU Aviation, going beyond any imaginable expectation of service as a maintenance and interim safety officer." He was honored for his selfless and tireless work ethic and 'humor' in publishing aircraft morning reports. Gibbs personally thanked him for "steering the EKU maintenance 'ship of state' toward ever higher standards of aircraft safety."
