SIMPSON BAY, St. Maarten – Seven employees of the Princess Juliana International Airport operating company were awarded during last Friday’s employee of the month recognition program for their outstanding performance during the latter part of 2011 and the first quarter of 2012.
The seven honorees are Edsell Lake and Edmund Missoudan (operations), Shirley Salmon-Samson (security), Rovena Richardson and Reynaldo Richards (air traffic control), Elaine Gumbs (facility maintenance) and Valmond Mills (rescue and fire fighting).
An emphatic “thank you” to all employees was the sentiment of quality assurance manager Anastacio Baker and employee of the month committee member Anastacio Baker. He asked that all employees “continue to strive for excellence and continue to be dedicated to PJIAE.”
Plaques of appreciation, gift baskets, and checks were presented to all the honorees by their department heads and the Managing Director of PJIAE, Regina Labega.
