The LeRoy W. Homer Jr. Foundation: Where We Are, Where We’re Going

As we approach the 10 year anniversary of September 11, my mind cannot help but reflect on the last 10 years that have past.  Ten years of pain, tears and healing for so many.  It was also ten years of new beginnings.  In 2002, the LeRoy Homer Jr. Foundation was created in memory of a hero who loved to fly.  With this love, we have helped a dozen young men and women live out their dream of becoming professional pilots.

So many organizations were created after September 11, 2001, many of which are no longer in existence today. As I look back, I am proud to be part of an organization that is not only in existence but is growing stronger every year.

On Saturday, August 20, 2011, we will be commemorating the 10 year anniversary of September 11 and celebrating what the LeRoy W. Homer Jr. Foundation has accomplished. Scholarship recipients from all over the country will be at the Laurel Creek Country Club in Mt. Laurel, NJ to share with us how this organization has changed their lives.  As we look forward to the next ten years, we will strive to continue creating new beginnings for young men and women who love to fly.

  1. Hi folks,
    I’m a journalist with an opportunity to highlight the Foundation as the 10th anniveraary of 9/11 approaches for a web site: http://www.generocity.org
    I was one of the early jurnalists to interview Melodie ten years ago. My phone number is (856o) 235-1272 and there’s a daunting deadline on this.

    Thanks so much for any assistance you can offer.

    Best,
    Sally Friedman
