Fred winner flies high

TOMPKINSVILLE — Anyone affiliated with the Monroe County School District will tell you what kind of person Jon Foote is.

Foote, who recently was named as the 2012 Kentucky Association of School Administrators (KASA) Fred award winner, has brought a new perspective to students at the Monroe County Falcon Academy.

The award is based on the bestselling book by Mark Sanborn, “The Fred Factor,” and recognizes individuals whose extraordinary efforts on a daily basis contribute to create a positive atmosphere in Kentucky’s school communities, according to KASA.

Foote teaches students the ins and outs of the aviation industry.

Max Petett, principal of the academy, said everyone is better off for knowing Foote.

“He came to our county a few years ago and was looking for a place to begin his program,” Petett said. “He trains airplane mechanics and pilots. Once he gets them trained, they will work for Missionaire and they’ll go and help out missionaries. They will deliver food, clothing and supplies all over the world. We are very fortunate to have Jon here.”
