HIGH HONOR: City of Troy celebrates Tuskegee Airmen with historical marker for hangar

first_img Maj. Gen. Walter Givhan, Troy University Senior Vice Chancellor, said the Tuskegee Airmen flew more than 15,000 missions during World War II and their impressive performance earned them more than 150 Distinguished Flying Crosses.“The distinguished performance of the Tuskegee Airmen paved the way for the integration of the U.S. Air Force,” Givhan said.The Tuskegee Airmen were young African American men who aspired to become pilots but had to overcome many obstacles including racism. At that time, racial segregation remained the rule in the U.S. armed forces. Facing seemingly impossible odds, the Tuskegee Airmen were determined to realize their dreams to become aviators, said Brigadier General Edward Crowell, Troy University Trustee.“These young airmen were proud individuals,” Crowell said. “They aspired to be aviators and they were determined to show they could fly. They seized the opportunity to excel.”Crowell said the Tuskegee Airmen paved the way for the desegregation of the United States military “without thinking about it.”“They put service before self and they accomplished their goals. They showed they could fly.” Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Sponsored Content By Jaine Treadwell Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Blood Sugar BlasterIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?

Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Published 4:00 am Thursday, March 1, 2018 Email the author Crowell said if the walls of the Tuskegee Army Airfield hanger could talk, what stories they could tell.Sharon Rose, the daughter of Tuskegee Airman Sherman T. Rose said those stories would be of adversity and discrimination, of courage and commitment. Those stories would be of barriers and visions, of men who loved to fly.She closed with Gillespie Magee’s “High Flight” that surely captured, in its closing lines, the feeling of a dream fulfilled by those who proudly wore the title Tuskegee Airmen:“I’ve topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace; Where never lark or even eagle flew: And, while with silent lifting mind I’ve trod; The high untrespassed sanctity of space; Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.”Lamar Higgins, Troy University Trustee, closed the program with heavenly thanks for opening doors to new opportunities and for closed doors that cause us to look to heaven.

The “Yin and Yang” of credit union reporting/analytics software: 3 factors to consider

first_img 2SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr by: Paul AblackAs a veteran of the Business Intelligence (BI) industry, which is now being eclipsed by Big Data and Analytics, I have witnessed many organizations looking for the “perfect BI software”.For at least a decade now, BI software companies have been striving for leadership in the coveted Gartner Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence. The Magic Quadrant evaluates BI software vendors on two dimensions: (1) Completeness of Vision and (2) Ability To Execute. While these two dimensions do provide very good insight into the capabilities of each vendor’s product offering, they don’t tell the whole story.Many IT departments over the years that have gone through the process of acquiring expensive BI software because they were led to believe by the BI vendors that the software was a “Silver Bullet”. Rather than making reporting & analytics easy and accessible across the enterprise, the promise of the Silver Bullet never materialized and it was often relegated to the class of “Failed IT Implementations”.If you have been charged with the responsibility for choosing the right Reporting/Analytics (R/A) software for your credit union, here are three key factors that must be considered before making a purchasing decision and setting expectations within your credit union. continue reading »last_img read more
