Roanoke-Blackburg Regional Airport head to retire after 25 years

Airport-logoFrom the Roanoke-Blacksburg Regional Airport – Airport Commission chair, Cynthia Lawrence, announced that Roanoke‐Blacksburg Regional Airport Executive Director Jacqueline Shuck has informed the members of the Airport Commission of her desire to retire at the end of 2014. Shuck, who is the first and only airport director to serve under the Airport Commission which was formed in 1987, has worked in this capacity for 25 years, following more than five years in a similar position in Cleveland, Ohio. During her tenure, ROA’s first low cost carrier, Allegiant Air, began service, regional jets became commonplace, and the airport saw the construction of a new air traffic control tower, a completely rehabilitated airfield, numerous infrastructure projects and most recently the renovation of the airport terminal which was newly opened the week before she began her employment with the Commission. Shuck has indicated that she will remain on the job while the Commission conducts a nationwide search to find the most qualified candidate to fill this position.
