Celebrate Freedom Foundation Participates in 2014 Southeast Aviation Expo,
Held on Sept. 26 & 27 at Greenville Downtown Airport

Greenville, S.C. — Celebrate Freedom Foundation towed its Cobra helicopter display, Annie, to present a SOaR™ (Student, Opportunity and Rewards) STEM workshop from 12:40 to 1:40 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 27 at the 2014 Southeast Aviation Expo, held on Sept. 26 & 27 at Greenville Downtown Airport.

CFF’s volunteers, led by CFF President Jack Lovelady and CFF Executive Director Larry Russell, joined other pilots from around the southern region who showcased the latest products on the market as well as offered education on the products they marketed.

But CFF’s team of volunteers had an entirely different mission. They focused instead on educating students on the importance of STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) they will need to pursue careers in aviation.

Shown below are some of the photos that were taken.

CFF’s SOaR™ Team talks with students and adults visiting Annie, the Foundation’s mobile educational display. On a table, CFF displayed cutting-edge manufacturing tools used in aviation.

The 2014 Southeast Aviation Expo, sponsored by the S.C. Aviation Association, is the only pilot-focused trade show held each year in South Carolina.
