Scholarship Group Visits CWAM

Megan Hubbard is a student in the Aviation program at Mountain View College in Dallas. She received a $500.00 scholarship today from the Hella Flying Fezzes. After lunch and a presentation in the airport cafe, many of the group, including Professor of Aviation, Richard Parra, visited the Cold War Air Museum. Megan is shown here in the cockpit of our Mig-23. Congratulations, Megan!

Mountain View College is one of seven campuses in the Dallas County Community College system. The Aviation Program is part of the Career and Technical Education Division of the College. Professor Parra teaches many of the professional and advanced courses in the program.

The "Flying Fezzes" are an aviation interest group whose members are all Shriners. The "Shriners" are a fraternal organization known worldwide for creating and supporting the Shriners Hospitals for Children, a system of 22 hospitals worldwide providing care for children up to the age of 18 in a family-centered environment at no charge – regardless of financial need. Hella is the name of the Dallas branch of the Shriners.
