Personal Statement

One of my greatest joys as a teacher happens when…a flight student's dreams to become a pilot can begin at Hesston College. As our students improve their piloting skills, they will find their people and decision-making skills strengthening. This personal touch to the fulfillment of their aviation dream comes within a Christ-centered community.
To advocate the joy of flight while teaching and modeling the skills, principles and attitudes of safe, responsible, thoughtful airmanship is central in why I teach. Living and flight instructing in a community of faith; at the same time pursuing the college's mission is a wonderful service opportunity and experience.
