Airlines for America (A4A), the industry trade organization for the leading U.S. airlines, today announced that President and CEO Nicholas E. will receive the 2016 Award for Excellence in Business, presented by the Sons of Italy Foundation (SIF), the philanthropic arm of the nation’s largest and oldest organization for people of Italian heritage.

Calio, along with leaders in public service, business, labor and philanthropy, will be honored at SIF’s National Education & Leadership Awards Gala in Washington, D.C., on May 26.

Also being honored are Condoleezza Rice, who will receive the 2016 SIF Lifetime Achievement Award for Public Service for her distinguished career in education administration and international relations, chiefly as U.S. Secretary of State during two presidential administrations; and labor leader Paul Rinaldi, President of the National Air Traffic Controllers Association, who will receive the 2016 SIF Humanitarian Award.

“I am honored to be recognized alongside such distinguished leaders as former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and NATCA President Paul Rinaldi, both of whom I am proud to call friends,” Calio said. “The Sons of Italy foundation is an organization that recognizes the importance of giving back and plays a critical role in supporting the next generation of business leaders through national academic scholarships, and I thank the members of the foundation for this honor.”

In the past 25 years, the SIF has contributed $164 million to education, medical research, disaster relief, cultural preservation, and other special projects, with $61 million of it given to scholarships.
