The year was 1980: the Rubik’s Cube had made its debut, Post-It Notes went on sale and the cost of a gallon of gas was $1.19. It was an eventful year, as the U.S. Olympic ice hockey team made history at the Lake Placid Winter Olympics that came to be known as “Miracle on Ice,” and CNN launched the first 24-hour news station, while ABBA was playing on the radio and Nine to Five was showing on the big screen.
1980 was also notable for the Salt Lake City Department of Airports (SLCDA), as it marked the beginning of Al Stuart’s career as an Airport Operations Officer. In this position, Stuart performed operational duties associated with curbside enforcement, law enforcement, and terminal, ground transportation and airfield operations. After more than four decades with SLCDA, Stuart will retire on July 29, 2022.
The Salt Lake City Department of Airports (SLCDA) has appointed Melyssa Trnavskis as the Director of Airport Design and Construction Management. She replaces Director of Engineering Kevin Robins who recently retired.
