DENVER - Kiosks do not really make your day like Hanna Atkinson can.

She is one of four Special Olympics athletes that joined United Airlines last October to launch their Special Olympics Service Ambassador Program in Denver.

Hanna, David Riley, Cody Field, and Chris McElroy are all paid employees, and they help customers check-in, check their bags, find their gate, and really just have a more positive airport experience.

"For me, I love to work," said Hanna, who is also the 2022 Special Olympics Hall of Fame Female Athlete of the Year.

"The reason why I love to work is because I just like to help people. That's my ideal [job] - I love to help people," she said.
