MSS has benefited greatly from these young men's contributions to our club by helping with maintenance and all-around help whenever needed. Long-time MSS member Roy Hendrix provided initial funding for the Foundation's scholarships.
Pictured here are, L-R:

New Membership Announced! - A Youth Membership was adopted at the Board's January 2018 meeting as it seeks to add more youth to our ranks. Memphis Soaring is a great place to introduce youth to aviation, especially if he or she is considering a career in aviation. Our instructors can help determine early on if they are suited for such a career as they work with the student. Full details are shown under the Membership tab above.
Board Meeting - Our next board meeting will be on August 11th at 0900 in the Hendrix Clubhouse. The last one was on June 30, combining the June and July meetings.
