All in the Family!

PHOTO CAPTION: Amelia Earhart, who was a career counselor at Purdue for two years before her ill-fated flight attempt around the world in 1937, has inspired many women to fly, as well as to pursue careers in science and engineering. Her legacy continues to influence people today, including some of the Purdue female aviation technology students pictured here with Purdue President, France A. CArdova.

Janice will be going to a museum and movie for a $10.00 special on Amelia. Apparantly the museum was established in her honor in Atchinson Kansas, just on the other side of Leavenworth, Kansas. I would go if I were closer. Sincerely, Celestyne

Yes, she is an important daughter of Kansas. I remember hearing about her throughout elementary and high school. Dekiyra Love, pictured here, is our granddaughter.
