A number of years ago, Woodland Elementary School fifth grade teacher Eric Vander Loop’s teacher’s aide shared that his mother had been diagnosed with cancer. Vander Loop saw an opportunity to help while teaching his students about kindness to strangers.
Since then, students at the school district in Appleton have raised more than $120,000 for cancer research, a compassionate outcome that earned Vander Loop a recent opportunity to represent the Milwaukee Brewers during the All-Star game as one of 30 winners of People magazine and Major League Baseball’s All-Star Teachers campaign presented by Target. The students that began the program in fifth grade are high school juniors today.

FREDERICK, Md. — On this day in 1939, five pilots — all unabashed aviation enthusiasts — gathered near Wings Field north of Philadelphia and signed the charter that would launch the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA), a fledgling group that was destined to become the world’s largest aviation member association.
Then, as now, AOPA’s primary mission was to protect the freedom to fly for the growing population of general aviation pilots and aircraft owners.
