Legacy of Flight Academy Helps Kids Soar

In March, Col. Kyna McCall, USAF, chapter president, represented women in AFCEA as a chaperone and mentor at the Eyes Above the Horizon event presented by Legacy of Flight Academy and the Red Tail Scholarship Foundation. The event took place at the legendary home of the Tuskegee Airmen, Moton Field in Tuskegee, Alabama, and provided 105 youths with an opportunity to be exposed to STEM programs and the field of aviation. Students received the chance to be mentored by Lt. Gen. Anthony Cotton, USAF, commander and president, Air University, and Col. Charles McGee, USAF (Ret.), one of the last living Tuskegee Airmen. Students were also given a chance to fly in various aircraft. Many of the participants came from an underprivileged background, and the opportunities provided by Eyes Above the Horizon inspired them to recognize the sky is the limit. Finally, all participants were furnished information on colleges, scholarship and employment opportunities in both civilian and military aviation fields.
