This year’s Gala will feature American pilot and motivational speaker Amelia Rose Earhart. Named by the Jaycees as one of the “Top Ten Young Americans”, Amelia Rose Earhart set out to complete the 1937 flight of her namesake, Amelia Mary Earhart, making her the youngest American woman to complete the flight. Her 28,000 mile flight around the world in a single-engine aircraft became a symbol of determination, courage, and empowerment for anyone who has ever decided to seek new horizons.
In addition, comedian and entertainer Greg Schwem will emcee the event.
