Angela Shafer-PayneVice President
San Diego Regional Airport Authority
I am on JA board because... Through infrastructure, my agency provides the ability for people in the region to see the world. JA is a wonderful resource to help young people see how world operates. I wanted to participate on the JA board to work to bring these two regional resources together.
One of my favorite JA memories is... The airport provides free public tours to the community. I, along with many of my colleagues often guide these public tours. On one of my tours in 2012, I had a child who was so excited to see the airport because she had gone to JA and the seen the JA "airport." What a wonderful experience to hear firsthand from a child about her JA experience and then watch her experience San Diego International Airport!
