Walter "Wally" Burg
Wally started his 36-year career with the Tucson Airport Authority (TAA) as a firefighter in 1966 while still in college. A graduate of the New Mexico Military Institute and the University of Arizona, he also served in the Arizona National Guard. After graduation from the University of Arizona with a degree in Business Administration, Wally joined the TAA's planning department, eventually working his way up to President and CEO in 1979. He served 23 years at the Airport Authority's helm and became one of the industry's most highly regarded professionals-nationally and internationally. The expansion to Tucson International Airport (TIA), which Wally initiated and directed, is his legacy to the community. So great was the affection for him at TIA that many of the airport's 300 employees referred to him as "Uncle Wally".

He was a member of the Airports Council International's board, serving as its chairman in 1991-1992. Other professional service included the International ACI Board, Arizona Airports Association and the Arizona State Aviation Task Force. In 2008 he received the prestigious ACI-NA William E. Downs Jr. Award for his outstanding leadership in promoting the cause of airports and aviation.

Wally served with many community organizations as well, including Carondelet Healt Network, Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce, where he was a Chairman in 1999. The Walter A. Burg Scholarship is a memorial scholarship awarded annually to dependents of TAA employees who have been admitted to the University of Arizona as full-time students.
