Coldwell’s friends and colleagues celebrated not only her successes at Southwest Airlines, where she serves as communications director, but the journey she has taken to achieve them.
“Katie has built a career centered on authenticity, connection and care for every employee and customer at Southwest Airlines,” Craig Fisher (’92), assistant vice president for alumni and university relations, said at the event.
As communications director, Coldwell pursues Southwest Airlines’ mission to “connect people to what’s important in their lives” by leading the corporate communication team in creating the company’s voice, educating and inspiring its more than 58,000 employees, and fostering the unique and outstanding reputation for which the organization is known.
“Through her service to Southwest customers, her community and her ACU family, Katie models generosity, excellence and servant leadership,” Fisher said. “We’re proud of you and the work you’re doing in the world, and we’re proud that you’re a Wildcat.”
