This is the second year in a row that Ed has earned the distinction of the highest number of annual volunteer hours.
"Ed exemplifies the spirit of public service that characterizes the men and women of our airport community…who work tirelessly – even when they don’t get paid – to provide world class transportation services to the National Capital Region," observed Jack Potter, the authority's CEO.
