Artlite’s Bert Light received the ECi Solutions Everyday Hero Award for 2017 for his work with Angel Flight Soars, a volunteer organization that provides free air transportation to get people to life-changing medical care.

ECi Solutions provides information and technology software for many industries, and Artlite, an office supply company in Atlanta, operates on the ECi platform, qualifying Light for consideration for the award. His wife nominated him.

Light joined DeKalb-Peachtree Airport-based Angel Flight Soars in 1999 and serves on the organization’s board of directors as chairman emeritus. He frequently volunteers to fly missions.

ECi donated $5,000 to Angel Flight Soars as part of the volunteer award.
