RE: Annual Report of the President

Members of Memphis Chapter, TAI,

Congratulations on having completed our seventeenth year as a Tuskegee Airmen Chapter in the Memphis area.

This year we offered Memphis Chapter Educational Assistance Fund and Aviation Assistance Fund (Scholarship) awards of $1000 each.

We assisted in conducting the June and July 2013 Summer ACE Academy for youth ages 14-18.  We also assisted with the Project Aviator "Girls to Women" and "Boys to Men" Programs.  Throughout the 2013-2014 School Year we continued our program of Aviation in Schools visits where Aviation Professionals visit schools throughout the school year.  Members participated in career days and gave motivational speeches.  Many schools continue to request our participation.  We need as many of our members and supporters as possible to participate in school visits and career days to provide guidance and role models for the youth in our area.  Any contribution or participation (no matter the size) is greatly appreciated!

Welcome to our new members and thank you to the members who continue to support this organization year after year.  Your support and commitment to the goals of this organization is very much appreciated as we continue to preserve the legacy of the Tuskegee Airmen of WW2 and "engage in motivating young persons, especially minorities, toward aviation and aerospace careers; to inspire youth to outstanding achievements and leadership through social and educational activities."

We plan to host the February 2015 MEMPHIS AVIATION PROFESSIONALS Annual Luncheon and Youth Awards.

Remember to continue to support the Educators, Parents, Students, Corporations, and other organizations who assist us in achieving our goals.

Together, we can "Continue the Tuskegee Airmen Legacy" and "Mentor the Youth"!
