It was another special year for the Tom Hudner Scholarship of Honor presentation at the EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh Wisconsin. Shelly Schaub received the award paying tribute to Medal of Honor Recipient, Tom Hudner. She attended last years presentation when her good friend, Irene Trujillo, received the scholarship. This year was her turn. Shelly graduated from Ripon High School in 2008 and is now attending the University of Eau Claire as an Elementary Education major. This summer she obtained her private pilots license. Her dream is to teach students, inspire them to follow their dreams and include flying in her career.
This year, we were grateful to have our good friend and member of Brian's Foundation Board, George Patton "Pat" Waters, help present. Pat is the grandson of General George Patton. He enjoyed his day at EAA, where the focus this year was honoring our Veterans.
Congrats Shelly! We know you will follow in the footsteps of Tom Hudner and make a true difference in this world.
