New Horizons Scholarship

The SE Section New Horizons Scholarship honors our our Ninety-Nines who have passed to new horizons, and at the same time, inspires the scholarship recipients as they achieve new milestones and move to new horizons in their flying achievements.

The SE Section Ninety-Nines members memorialize our friends, our colleagues, our mentors, and our sister pilots. Each aviatrix has contributed to promoting aviation and inspiring others in her own unique manner. The following women will all truly be missed.
  
CELESTIAL FLIGHT POEM

She is not dead, But only flying higher,
Higher than she’s flown before
And earthly limitations will hinder her no more

There is no service ceiling or any fuel range
And there is no anoxia, or need for engine change
Thank God that now her flight can be to heights her eyes had scanned
Where she can race with comets and buzz the rainbow’s span

For she is Universal, like courage, love and hope,
And all free, sweet emotions of vast and Godly scope.
And understand a pilot’s Fate is not the thing she fears,
But rather sadness left behind, your heartbreak and your tears.

So all you loved ones, dry your eyes, yes, it is wrong that you should grieve,
For she would love your courage more,
and she would want you to believe she is not dead.
You should have known that she is only flying higher,
higher than she’s ever flown.

Written by WASP Elizabeth MacKethan Magid in memory of her friend Marie Michell Robinson.  
Marie was killed in 
the crash of a B-25, she was nineteen years old.
