The award is intended to recognize those employees for a variety of accomplishments, ranging from volunteer work in their communities to going beyond what their job calls for at work. Winners and their guests were feted in Dallas at a black tie dinner with a Mid Summer Night’s Dream Theme.

“In learning your stories, you all have given the same answer about why you are here tonight: ‘I was just doing my job.’ It’s obvious you were doing so much more than that and you are here tonight because of the commitment to excellence you exhibit, day in and day out,” said Doug Parker, the airline’s CEO, in his address to the attendees.

“I thought I was just doing my job, taking care of our customers,” said Nadine Jennings, the airline’s general manager at Owen Roberts International Airport (GCM) in the Grand Cayman Island, speaking about how she managed an emergency landing at the airport last August. Another employee was recognized for creating a cabin repair kit that would resolve common issues quickly, thereby preventing flight delays, and others cared for fellow employees suffering from terminal illnesses.

“I’ve met people from all around the world who are working to make American better with all they do each day,” said George Robinson, an award winner who is a lead aircraft maintenance technician at Ronald Regan National Airport.
