Members of our Board Mariah, Victoria, and Bart represented WAITB at last month's Girls Achieving Leadership in Aviation Summer Camp. Outreach Chair Victoria and Membership Chair Bart participated in the aviation jewelry workshop and the campers got to hear about member Victoria's journey in aviation while creating aviation themed jewelry.

President Mariah spoke on a panel alongside a few amazing women including former Astronaut Nicole Stott and Marilyn Gauthier, who is the General Manager of General Aviation for the Hillsborough County Aviation Authority. The young campers had an opportunity to hear about different opportunities in the aviation industry. If we were able to encourage at least one camper, we have done our job.

Thank you to our team for helping influence the next generation in youth!

After 4 years as a member of WAITB in the roles of Membership Chair, Secretary and now my 2nd year as Vice President, I will be leaving this role. It is my honor to work with Mariah and all of our officers in supporting our chapter goals.

Duties of this position include assisting the President with chapter requirements to maintain current chapter status with WAI. Together officers work to plan and support various events.

In addition to my duties as VP, I have also developed and maintained the chapter website and written these newsletters. These roles will also have to be filled.
