Lynn, a 1984 graduate of Northwest Ashe High School, earned a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. In pursuit of her goal to become a commercial airline pilot, Lynn then began flying lessons. During this time, she also joined USAir as a Pittsburgh/Philadelphia-based flight attendant. She worked in this capacity for five years. On September 8, 1994, Lynn died in a tragic airplane crash at the age of 28.
While job-related travel took Lynn and her husband to many parts of the nation, they dreamed that the mountains of the Blue Ridge would someday be “home.” It is fitting that this scholarship program benefits individuals that Lynn would have been pleased to call her neighbors and friends.
Lynn’s generosity, kindness, enthusiasm, determination and positive attitude touched many lives. It is the sincere hope of her family that the youth of Ashe County are challenged by this award to further their education and to adopt her enduring qualities.
