The LadiesLoveTaildraggers Tailwheel Endorsement Scholarship committee is excited to announce our winners! A panel of five LLT members including Katie Mullins, Val Thal-Slocum, Kelly Jeffries, Donna Guerin and Lynn Gardner were the team with the very difficult task of reviewing each of the applications and determining the winners. We received 40 entries, each with a unique story, all deserving of assistance. Kelly Jeffries stated it well when she wrote, “When I agreed to this task, I had no idea it would be so difficult. Â It was inspiring to read about these truly diverse group of women and I am honored to be a part of this process. If I could, I would give scholarships to most of this group. The caliber of women was simply amazing.”Â Our goal initially was to award a tailwheel endorsement scholarship to one female private pilot. The great news is, many people generously donated to the fund allowing us to award TWO full scholarships. TwoÂ very deserving ladies have now been selected!!
