I’m Joanna Calel I’m a part of the NAACP Youth Chapter and this is your Black History Month fact of the day. Journalist and nurse Ruth Carol Taylor became the first African American airline flight attendant in the United States when she joined Mohawk Airlines on Feb. 11, 1958. While she is most commonly known for her achievement in the airline industry, she spent much of her career as an activist for minority and women’s rights.

“Here’s another fantastic announcement from Fellowship of Christian Athletes! It’s easy to understand how leaders can change the world, but what kind do you think it takes to really make a difference? Tomorrow at 7:15, in Room 402, FCA discusses “Three Types of Leaders,” which one you might be and the one who will have the biggest impact. We only meet for 20 minutes, or so, and are hoping to see YOU there!
