“Our People are our greatest asset and they deserve all the credit for our continued success,” said Gary Kelly, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Southwest Airlines. “The vast majority of our Employees describe their work as ‘a calling,’ and it’s an honor to be able to recognize them for their passion, dedication, and their contributions.”
