Ponce named federal security director

Luz Ponce has been named federal security director for the

Burbank-Glen- dale-Pasadena Airport, according to news reports.

Ponce will fill a position that has been vacant since Madeline

Sawyer resigned in January. Sawyer oversaw the hiring and training of

more than 200 federal baggage screeners, but left the post after less

than five months to serve as a division manager in the Federal

Aviation Administration's Western Pacific region.

Ponce, who was the airport's assistant federal security director,

has been serving as acting director since Sawyer's resignation. She

could not be reached for comment late Thursday.
