Houston Has a New ATM!
« on: October 02, 2023, 07:20:48 PM »
It is my pleasure to announce the next ZHU ATM, Ethan Hawes! Ethan has been a dedicated member of the network for over 15 years and has never shied away from pitching in and helping out where needed. You may know Ethan from his time as ZFW TA, ZFW EC, a member of VATGOV, one of his many other staff roles, or just a friendly controller who loves to control in various ARTCCs such as ZID, ZHU, and many others! His wealth of knowledge, willingness to teach and empower the next generation of VATSIM members, and constant drive to improve set him up to be successful in his new role. He has already spent countless hours helping ZHU prepare for CRC, and continues to demonstrate what it means to be a leader in the community by leading by example. We are so excited for Ethan to take the reigns in ZHU, and look forward to watching the Houston ARTCC continue to grow under Ethan's leadership. Congrats Ethan!
