Service Takes Flight
Betty (Poe) Easley is passionate about flight. As a child, she moved to Clearfield, Utah, near Hill Air Force Base, and she loved watching the planes take off and land. “I was crazy about them,” Betty says. “I used to make all kinds of airplane models, and I would read books on how jet engines work.” Although Betty never wanted to be a pilot, she did find a way to pursue her passion for aviation—just many decades later.
After retiring as an elementary school music teacher in Hawthorne, Nevada, Betty began volunteering at the Hawthorne Industrial Airport. For more than eight years, Betty has been showing up every day to ensure that pilots coming in and out of the rural airport have transportation and the basic necessities to make their stay comfortable.
And the airport community is not the only beneficiary of Betty's generosity. Betty has been a longtime supporter of Westminster's annual fund. When she learned that she could direct her annual gift to the department of Aviation, Betty increased her gift!
