Local Legend: Cristina Polese

This week, we highlight a #Locallegend whose friendly smile welcomes every new Team Aviano member. Ms. Cristina Polese is the Intercultural Relations & Benvenuti Program Manager at the 31 FSS, A&FRC. People will recognize her from the weekly Newcomer’s Orientation class, the Friday Benvenuti tour, and the monthly Basic Italian class. She also assists families enroll their children at the various Italian Schools around the community. Cristina loves, “Meeting and getting to know every single Aviano newcomer, regardless of rank. I enjoy helping them and his/her family get settled into a new environment.” The Air Force has a special place in her heart. She met her husband while working for the Air Force. Grazie Cristina for all you do for the team!
