I couldn’t be happier to announce this year’s recipients of our LadiesLoveTaildraggers’ Scholarships. We had so many incredible applicantsÂ that choosing just two proved to be extremely difficult. Ultimately, these two fine ladies were named the winners!
Tailwheel Endorsement Scholarship:
Brittany Reinbolt fromÂ Searcy,Â Arkansas. Age 31, she has 536+ hours TT and has her Commercial, Instrument & CFI. Brittany works as a flight instructor for Central Flying Service, Little Rock, Arkansas. She is also on the U.S. Bobsled team and is a 2018 Olympic hopeful.
Stick & Rudder Master Class Scholarship:
Lisa Preuit from Wasilla, Alaska. Age 51, she has 2800 hours TT and holds Airline Transport, Multiengine & Commercial ratings. She works for the Valley Performing Arts Center in Wasilla and is the mother of two college bound kids. She say’s “it’s her turn now!”
A very special thank you to our panel of judges; Kelly Jeffries, Lynn Gardner, Katie Mullins, Val Slocum and Terri Hull. Two great choices ladies!
Many thanks to Brian Lansburgh from 6K5, Sisters Eagle Airport in Oregon for donating the Tailwheel Endorsement.
And a huge thank you to everyone who donated to the LLT Scholarship Fund. Without you, this would not have been possible! The good news is, it’s not over till it’s over. The 2016 LadiesLoveTaildraggers Fly-in/Splash-in is happening soon at KSLR, Sulphur Springs, Texas. June 2 – 5. All proceeds from the Poker Run and Auction will benefit our Scholarship Fund. With any luck, we’ll be able to award yet another scholarship this summer. If so, we will pull from this group of scholarship applicants.
I’ll be posting more about Brittany and Lisa soon, including selections from their applications, pictures, and one awesome video! Check back soon.
