A special thank you to Michael Friese, (’91, ERAU DB) for his generous gift to Dreams Soar. Michael has been flying for the U.S. Department of Justice for 20 years.

He visits the Embry-Riddle Daytona Beach campus annually to facilitate the popular Spin Dynamics Training and funds an additional Matt Chapman Upset Recovery Training Scholarship for students.

Here are a few words from Michael, “I believe that more young people today need some inspiration to take up careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. The young people today are the future of this nation and the human race. We are entering a new era, the deep exploration, and utilization of space. From asteroid mining to the colonization of Mars. The young people today that are educated in STEM are going to be pioneering the future of the earth.”
