Scott Crossfield Foundation seeks award and scholarship funds
A new nonprofit called the Scott Crossfield Foundation launched recently. The foundation's mission is to continue and expand upon the lifelong work of the legendary test pilot, the first to fly Mach 2, who died in 2006.
The group will work to promote the Aerospace Education Teacher of the Year Award, which was created and funded by Crossfield himself in 1986. He was a lifelong supporter of aviation and space education.
To help support the Foundation, limited-edition reproductions of William J. Reynolds' painting "On The Way To The Stars" are available for purchase through the Foundation. These 27-year-old, mint-condition prints are each numbered and signed by the artist, with a limited number also signed by Crossfield.
Donations will also support scholarships, as well as the development of a new website.
The future Web site will feature archives of historical material about Crossfield and his life and work, including photographs, slideshows, videos, stories, and comments from friends and colleagues.
