Rainwater named to Airshow board

The Chennault International Airshow announced the appointment of three new members to its Board of Directors:

Natalie Graham, project manager, CSRS; Kevin Land, methods engineering and ground support equipment manager, Northrop Grumman; and Kyle Rainwater, airport manager, DeQuincy Airport.

Each of the appointees were elected to the Board due to their undeniable love for aviation and passion for what the airshow represents to the Southwest Louisiana community.

Larry Rewerts, a longtime airshow supporter, previous airshow director and Board treasurer retired from the treasurer position on Oct. 26. Graham was elected to replace Rewerts in the treasurer role effective immediately. Rewerts will remain a general member of the Board until Jan. 1, 2024 to ensure a smooth transition for Graham.

With these changes, the airshow’s Board will comprise seven directors in 2024, three of whom have been re-elected to their respective officer positions: Bruce Beard, president; Molly LeCronier, vice president; and Tommy Little, secretary. Karen Wade also serves on the Board as a general member.
