The Aviation Division has had several high profile retirements over the past few months.
Director of Planning Greg Miller retired in December 2019 after 27 years of service. Miller began his career at the Aviation Division by designing a software application before working his way up to planning director. His colleagues, family and friends gathered on December 5, 2019, at a luncheon to celebrate Miller’s career.
“I hope that you look back on your time here with fond memories and a great source of pride,” said Director of Grants Kari Campbell. “You will certainly be missed.”
Miller’s retirement plans include lots of traveling with his wife, Mary. His colleagues presented him with gifts which included a signed model airplane.
“You are an amazing group of people,” said Miller. “I will miss everyone a lot—it has certainly been my pleasure to work with each and every one of you.”
Long-time Director of Flight Services and Division Deputy Director Jay Joseph also retired in September after joining the Aviation Division in the Fall of 2006. Prior to joining the Aviation Division, Joseph retired from the United States Marine Corps as a Colonel after 29 years of service, including a tour with the Navy Blue Angels, and also was a pilot for U.S. Air for 21 years. Among Joseph’s accomplishments were his efforts to upgrade the TxDOT fleet, which came to fruition in 2019.
