Suitland, Maryland (PRWEB) February 25, 2015
Andrews Federal Credit Union recently sponsored 20 JROTC students for the East Coast Chapter of the Tuskegee Airmen, Inc. youth breakfast held at the Clubs at Andrews. The theme for the event was “Empowering and Motivating Our Youth.”
Keynote speaker Lt. Gen. Ronnie D Hawkins Jr., United States Air Force, challenged a group of young people, mostly from Junior ROTC units from high schools in Prince George’s County, Maryland, to maintain their focus and to set goals that allow them to go further in life.
In addition to Lt. Gen. Hawkins, four of the original Tuskegee Airmen – William Fauntroy Jr., Dr. Ivan Ware, James “Jim” Pryde, and Major Anderson – were also in attendance.
“It was an honor and privilege to meet four original Tuskegee Airmen‚” said Andrews Federal Credit Union’s Rosalind Bishop, Regional Manager DC/MD/VA. “We are always looking for ways to support our local community, and servicemembers in particular. This event afforded us with an opportunity to do both.”
