Default AviationNation--first national award!

I was unaware we were even nominated, but received news that we have been selected for the Frank G. Brewer award this year. It is for youth aviation education achievement. The trophy resides in the National Air and Space Museum. Thanks go to Jim Beyer, Chief Mentor of our Omaha project, and I am sure many others. For info on this award (and a pic of the trophy,) see https://naa.aero/awards/awards-and-t.../brewer-trophy

After all these years of hard work, this certainly does bring a nice, warm feeling.

Bob

In first post, I misspelled Jim Beyer's name. Actually transposed "Brewer" from the name of the award. Nope, they are not the same. Sorry to all for the error.
