“We are proud to recognize the legacy of these two aviation forerunners” says Barry McGillivray, Associate Dean, Okanagan College School of Business. “These awards in their honour will assist young pilots in their training. Okanagan College is very grateful to the Clemens and Rutledge families for their generous support in creating these awards.”
Both aviators faced significant hurdles during their lengthy careers in the air, and both rose to the challenges in ways that Okanagan College, and their families, hope will inspire students to follow their dreams of flight.
