WMU College of Aviation Recognition Dinner

Posted by Tom Thinnes for College of Aviation

Dinner will be held on Friday, November 5 in the brand new Aviation Education Center at the College of Aviation campus located on the Battle Creek Executive Airport at Kellogg Field. A social period with a cash bar will be available beginning at 5:30, dinner starting at 6:15. Registration includes entrance and dinner. The Western Michigan University College of Aviation is dedicated to recognizing alumni, faculty, staff and supporters of the program for their accomplishments and dedication to the College. As part of the recognition program, the College of Aviation established the Hall of Honor and the Excellence in Diversity award. These two recognitions are designed to reward those individuals, organizations or groups who have made a difference in the industry and have contributed to the success and recognition of the WMU aviation program. While the Hall of Honor focuses on those connected to WMU who have contributed to the success of the aviation program in general, the Excellence in Diversity award is reserved for those who have excelled and dedicated their time in helping to diversify the aviation industry. Join us as we recognize our Hall of Honor, Excellence in Diversity, and scholarship award recipients.
