Graduation is the first milestone on KC’s path to success

Kayla Leigh Davis, who prefers to be called KC, has an exciting month ahead of her. She is finishing her senior year at Port Clinton High School and will be graduating with the Class of 2013.

KC lives in Port Clinton with her mom, Cris Magrum, and her dog Lilly. She is active in the county REC program, with her church and is looking forward to the Williams Syndrome Walk in Perrysburg. As a member of the Williams Syndrome community, KC has been active in the Toledo area group activities and camps.

This year has been a successful one for KC as she received Merit Honor Roll status and has enjoyed her final year of school. According to KC the best part of senior year was reading “The Hunger Games” in senior English.

Her future plans include a third summer working with the Bridges to Transition program for teens. For the past two summers she had been placed at Otterbein Living, a senior care facility and retirement community in Lakeside-Marblehead. She would like to have permanent placement there as KC has determined she would like a career in elder-care. KC has also been employed at Erie Islands Resort.

After graduation KC will be enrolling in college, seeking a degree in elder-care. She is still deciding on whether or not she will be on campus or taking courses online. KC is looking at either Firelands BGSU or Terra Community College. KC has a kind heart and loves working with older people and toddlers. Her sunny smile and ability to make people feel valued will ensure her success in the workplace. Best wishes to KC and congratulations on achieving this milestone.

Young Eagles Rally & airport open house May 18

This weekend young people ages 8-17 will have a chance to take to the skies. On Saturday, May 18, Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) Chapter 1247 will be hosting a Young Eagles Rally as a part of the airport’s “Learn to Fly Day” activities. This event will be held from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. at Erie-Ottawa Regional Airport, 3255 E. State Road, Port Clinton.

“Free airplane rides for area youth are just a part of the Rally,” said Lisa Benjamin, President of EAA Chapter 1247. “We hope to give a new generation the chance to learn more about all the possibilities available in the world of aviation.” Following the flight, each young person will receive a certificate making them an official Young Eagle. Their name will be entered into the “World’s Largest Logbook”, which is on permanent display at EAA Air Adventure Museum in Oshkosh, WI. The logbook is also accessible online at www.youngeagles.org

Learn to Fly Day was created to invite all people interested in the world of flight to discover more by meeting local aviators and learning the initial steps toward earning a pilot’s license. In addition to the Young Eagle flights, the airport open house will offer food and beverages. Visitors will have the opportunity to meet local airport staff, talk to flight instructors and EAA members and learn more about other aviation opportunities such as joining a flying club.

Stan Gebhardt, manager of the airport stated, “We look forward to building one-on-one relationships with members of the community to help them learn all that general aviation has to offer.”
