Community Outreach

The LeRoy W. Homer Jr. Foundation’s outreach program is currently available for disadvantaged schools in New Jersey.  The program “A Pilot You May Be” was introduced to nine schools, reaching over 1100 children ages 7 – 10.  The Foundation also participated in the Read Across America program by encouraging supporters to contact their local schools on behalf of The LeRoy W. Homer Jr. Foundation and read the children’s book “Amelia and Eleanor Take A Ride”, a book based on a true story about a flight that Eleanor Roosevelt and Amelia Earhart shared.  Both programs were well received with requests coming for us to visit again this school year.  A big thanks to Teresa Villarreal at Catavia Kids (www.cataviakids.com) for providing the Black Box CD Rom utilized in the program.

  1. I am the grandmother of 20 year old AUSTIN LEGERE is starting Embry Riddle in Jan. He wants to be a commercial pilot like his grandfather (my husband) who retired from USAIRWAYS after 35 years. I was looking for scholarships to help pay for this since his mom is single and the school is very expensive (but very good). I ran into this and called the lady, she told me to google it for an application and I see the story about LeRoy. To say this touched us is an understatement. LeRoy was an exceptional pilot and what Mrs. Homer is doing for future pilots is awe inspiring. Thank her for all she is doing. the families of future pilots appreciate what she is doing.
