BIG SPRING - Statewide recognition for the Big Spring Airpark Director.
Jim Little was named "General Aviation Manager of the Year" by the Texas Department of Transportation.
Little goes to the annual aviation conference in Houston every year, but says the award at this year's festivities was a big surprise.
Little has worked as the Airpark Director for about eight years.
His resume there boasts many improvements, including a renovated runway.
Little hopes the runway will be a landing pad for future development and expansion in Big Spring.
