Sadie Phipps, a 4th grader at Liberty Elementary in Galena, was one of the winners of the Women of Aviation essay contest. Alpha Air of Joplin offered the 500 word essay contest to 4th and 5th grade girls within a 50 mile radius of Joplin. The three girls each won a free introductory flying lesson at the Joplin Regional Airport. Sadie loved flying and hopes to be able to return to the sky soon.
