Charles McGee: Career Day Keynote Speaker

Career Day - Charles McGeeCharles McGee is a thirty year veteran of the US Air Force Officer that flew a record breaking 409 fighter combat missions in WWII, Korea, and Vietnam and received numerous accolades. He is also one of the famous Tuskegee Airmen, the first African-American military aviators in the US Armed Forces in a time of segregation and Jim Crowe laws. Back in 1942, McGee was a sophomore at the University of Illinois studying engineering until he decided to enlist in the army in the middle of WWII. Since his service ended, Charles McGee returned to school at Columbia College and completed the degree that he started thirty years prior because earning a college degree was always a lifelong goal for him.

He has been the director of Kansas City airport, member of the Aviation Advisory Commision, president of the National Aeronautical Association, and an ambassador of the Tuskegee Airmen.
