WR Airport seeking new manager
The Walnut Ridge Regional Airport is seeking applicants for a new airport manager after current manager Maggie Glisson resigned effective Thursday. Glisson, who is moving out of the area, was hired for the position in May.
Commission Chair Don Cavenaugh said no airport experience is required for the position, instead they are seeking someone who is community service oriented. More specific details about the job's requirements can be found on page 8A in the airport's help wanted advertisement.
Wanting to hire within the county, Cavenaugh encourages all those interested to submit their applications as soon as possible.
Until the position is filled, the airport is expected to run as usual with airport staff and Cavenaugh working together to take on some of the responsibilities the manager would normally handle.
Interested applicants should submit their resume to Cavenaugh by mail to Airport Manager, c/o Walnut Ridge City Hall, PO Box 723, Walnut Ridge, AR 72476, or by email at email@example.com.
For more information, call Cavenaugh at 870-930-6659.
