UCM Daily - Thursday, April 24

Tony Monetti Receives Learning to a Greater Degree Award for Commitment to Aviation Department


Tony Monetti (center) earned the Learning to a Greater Degree Award for his genuine passion for his students and the Department of Aviation.

Tony Monetti was hired as the assistant dean of aviation in August 2012. The first thing he did was create six foundational core values for the department, hired field-expert faculty members and began fostering relationships on and off campus.

"The key to success is helping others succeed," says Monetti. "It's not about you. It's about the students and your team."

It's Monetti's genuine personality and passion for the department that has led to its success and the success of its students. He leads by example and has inspired students to step up as program leaders as well.

"He truly cares about every student, and he is always at the service of others to make sure he's doing everything he can to create a culture that reflects his service and that of the department's," says John Ellis, the graduate assistant in the Department of Aviation.

Monetti uses every possible resource to help the department achieve its full potential. By using expertise gained from his experiences as a private pilot, local business owner and B2 bomber in the U.S. Air Force, he teaches students what skills are most important when looking for employment.

By inspiring and encouraging others through his enthusiasm for UCM aviation, Monetti, his students and his team are learning to a greater degree.
