BULLET Adela Riek Scharr Medallion Winner

TWA Employee Volunteers & Staff
and
Students of Eliot School
- 1995 Recipients

 

The TWA Employee Volunteers & Staff and the Students of Eliot School received the Scharr Medallion in 1995 as part of the St. Louis Public Library's Aviation History Month activities. The award honored the partnership of TWA and Eliot School in promoting education in areas of aviation and aeronautics.

The TWA/Eliot partnership, established in 1990, uses aviation-related in-class programs and afterschool clubs to teach students about geography, citizenship, scholarship, etiquette, and a host of other subjects. Volunteers from TWA conduct workshops, read to students, and encourage the learning process in new and creative ways. Admirers have cited the program as a model of how community partnership programs should work.
