New manager takes over Floyd W. Jones Airport (KLBO)

Sandra Shore, the new manager for the Floyd W. Jones Airport, stands in front of the airport sign.

Fifty years after the Floyd W. Jones Airport was christened, it is starting the next phase of its existence under a new manager this month.

Camdenton native Sandra Shore began work as Lebanon’s airport manager in early January, and she said that she plans to focus on airport projects and community outreach.

“There’s definitely a lot of room for improvements — pursuing different grants to get some construction on the airfield side and really kind of developing a good relationship with the community through different events, different opportunities,” Shore said.

After graduating from Camdenton High School, Shore attended a community college in Alton, Ill., then transferred to Southern Illinois University to finish her undergraduate degree in aviation management.

Like many people in the aviation field, Shore originally wanted to be a pilot.
