Our class is named after Amelia Earhart. Earhart was the first woman to fly across the Atlantic and then to fly solo across the Atlantic; she passionately believed that women could do all the things men could, at a time when many barriers were placed in her way. The world will always remember Amelia Earhart for her courage, vision, and ground-breaking achievements, both in aviation and for women.
