Top FAA Administrator to Speak at Brenau Commencement

Annie B. Andrews, a retired U.S. Navy rear admiral who now serves as a top official with the Federal Aviation Administration, will deliver commencement addresses Friday and Saturday, May 6 and 7, to the more than 300 students participating in Brenau University’s 137th spring graduation ceremonies.

The Hinesville, Georgia, native who retired in September after a 32-year career in the Navy currently serves as assistant administrator for human resource management for the FAA, the Washington, D.C.-based organization that, with its 46,000 employees, regulates all aspects of American civil aviation.

“Admiral Andrews knows the importance of education and the job market for the world that is changing every day,” said Brenau President Ed Schrader. “The moment I met her, I was convinced that she had something valuable to say to our graduates.”
