Meet Scholarship Recipient Denise Whitford
by Sydney Burns, Marketing and Communications Associate
Meet Denise Whitford????✈️????
When I was younger, I thought being a pilot would be exciting. I learned that it is much more than that. If there is a word more powerful than exhilarating, that is what I would describe what flying has come to mean for me. I want to be a professional airline pilot because it must be an amazing way to spend your working hours; a career with challenges that is well worth the time and dedication to get there. I also want young women and girls of color to see people like themselves in positions that were once out of reach.
I’m excited to begin work on my multi-engine rating with the support of Ameriflight.” – Denise
