The campus community is invited to a President’s Forum presentation at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday by William F. Stepp III, associate professor of aviation, who will highlight his Heli-Expo experience in Anaheim, Calif., and share information on the industry. Andrew L. Stamey, who graduated in May with a bachelor’s degree in aviation maintenance technology – and one of two student attendees at the conference – will add his insights during the presentation in Room W204 of the Breuder Advanced Technology and Health Sciences Center. Attendance at the February conference allowed Stepp to participate in meetings of the Helicopter Association’s International Technical Committee, of which he is a member. The experience yielded two scholarships for student attendees (Stamey and Marc T. Kaylor, another May graduate), teaching materials for the aviation department, contacts for student internships and/or employment, as well as sources of additional equipment donations. Stepp is the first awardee from the Strategic Initiative Fund, created by President Davie Jane Gilmour to increase the college’s presence at the national level via presentations and/or leadership within national associations. Interested faculty and staff can learn more about the fund through the president’s page on the myPCT Web portal.
