This MOU will be a bridge to enhance the student learning process and drive recognition of our historical milestones in aviation and military accomplishments. As a partnership, we can reach more audiences and achieve more positive outcomes while giving a better appreciation for our men and women who have served in our military. The Warhawk mascot represents a legacy that faculty, students, and our community can be very proud to represent
