Women in Flight: Jackie Cochran
March 19 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM
Location: Garfield Book Company Community Room
Fran Postma will speak to L.I.F.E. There were numerous women pilots who far exceeded Amelia Earhart's well publicized accomplishments, one being Jackie Cochran. She was probably the greatest female pilot in aviation history. Jackie's humble childhood made her only more determined to achieve. Her second grade education didn't stop her. Neither did her lack of money. She set more aviation speed, altitude and distance records than any other pilot, male or female, in aviation history. Jackie was an irresistible force. A native-born American heroine. Learning Is ForEver is offering this presentation free to PLU students, staff and faculty. For more information please contact Laura Stewart at or at (253)241-4166.
