Monroe County’s Got One For You Meet KASA’s 2012 Fred Award recipient Jon Foote. Volunteering his time as an aviation instructor for Monroe County Schools, Foote is also founder and CEO of Missionaire International, a company that rebuilds and services airplanes for bush pilots doing missionary work around the world. After deciding to relocate his business, Foote found his way to Monroe County. He knew he was in the right place when he was given the green light to volunteer as an instructor at the high school. Thanks to his dedication, what began as one enrichment class is now a four-year aviation program where students receive various certifications and licenses while graduating from high school career-ready. Foote has given students a thirst for knowledge and exciting careers. As a volunteer, he gives of himself, his business, and his heart to the students of Monroe County High School. We’re looking for KASA’s 2013 Fred! Got Fred?
