Purple Eagle Dedication 2023

Memphis, August 9-13, 2023: The CSA Air Family has once again been asked to sponsor this years’ St. Jude Purple Eagle Honoree – Olivia! Olivia is the 11th honoree of the Purple Eagle Program, which honors a St. Jude patient who has a parent or a grandparent who works for FedEx.

What is the Purple Eagle Dedication? FedEx Express began a tradition in 2012 (now in the 11th year!) of naming a FedEx Cessna Caravan aircraft in honor of a FedEx employee’s child who is a St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital patient. The Annual dedication was held at TPC Southwind, home of the FedEx St. Jude Invitational Golf Tournament in Memphis, TN.

“We are proud to be part of the FedEx Feeder Network and to participate in such a great cause. Olivia will join Mya (past Purple Eagle Nominee) in our fleet as we carry her name and the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital cause everywhere we go.” Todd Silverstone, General Manager and Director of Operations of CSA AIR

As promised, each winner of MAC’s “Employee of the Year,” who embodies our core values, will be eligible to accompany our team to Memphis for this prestigious event. This year, Miriam Acevedo, last year’s winner, attended and participated in this truly inspiring event.

“Reflecting on this journey and the experiences, and how I am part of this great and immense project, being recognized and making a difference by doing just a little – I am simply blessed. Thank you, MAC, for seeing me, beyond being Employee of the Year; and to be able to represent MAC at this great event.” Miriam Acevedo, Aviation Recruiting and Employee Engagement Specialist
