Happy Holidays! Since it’s the season of giving and time to “Better be good  for goodness sakes”, I wanted to remind everyone, who is thinking of taking any kind of flight training, to consider applying for a scholarship.

There are so many out there one of them has your name on it. The deadline for me to receive your application for the Amelia Earhart Memorial Scholarship is Jan 1. I then review it to make sure that all the i’s are dotted and t’s crossed. It is then sent onto 99s central. Please visit the website for the Southwest Section to see a listing of all available scholarships, sws99.org/scholarship and have a great time with family and friends!
