We had the pleasure of sponsoring the Serve Denton “Miracle on the Hudson” event on April 8. Two things made this event special. First, it featured Jeff Skiles, co-pilot of the U.S. Airways Flight 1549. Skiles shared his views on the value of teamwork and collaboration to achieve desired results. And what a view he had considering he is responsible for the safety of thousands of travelers as a normal part of his job. And how he and Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger worked heroically, as a team, to land Flight 1549, after losing power to two engines, without loss of life or serious injury to anyone.
Learning from heroes like this makes for a special evening. The other highlight was meeting people in the community who are making a difference behind the scenes at several local non-profit agencies. Truly an awe-inspiring evening.
