Congratulations to Renee Sandell for winning the Professional Pilot of the Year for the Southwest Section of the 99s. Renee has been a member of the Bay Cities 99s since 2009 and recently held the position of Chapter Chair. She shepherded many events and projects into the chapter including Girl Scout Aviation Badge day, the Poker Run Scholarship Fundraiser and participation in Aviation Week at Amelia Earhart School. Renee, a 16 year Southwest Pilot, participates in the company’s Adopt-A-Pilot program, in which she mentors 5th grade students. As Renee says, “the more involved I become and the more I give, the more I get in return”.
