|AFA Garners the Strickler Aerospace Education Award
The National Coalition for Aviation and Space Education (NCASE) announced that it has selected the Air Force Association as a recipient of the Dr. Mervin K. Strickler Aerospace Education Award in recognition of its outstanding achievements in the field of aerospace education. The award will be presented at the National Aeronautic Association’s annual awards banquet on November 8, 2010, at the Crystal Gateway Marriott in Arlington, Virginia.
In 1995, NCAE established the Dr. Mervin K. Strickler Jr. Award to honor Dr. Strickler and recognize individuals or organizations that share his personal commitment and lifelong contributions to aerospace education. Dr. Strickler has promoted aerospace education for more than 50 years and is considered the “father” of aerospace education.
AFA has shown consistent and enduring support for aerospace education for over 60 years and is aggressively pursuing new and innovative programs – today and for the future.
