Crenchaw Aviation Exhibit Lands Permanent Home at Philander Smith College Library

Philander Smith College is proud to now serve as home for the Dr. Milton Pitts Crenchaw exhibit. Unveiled on Friday, February 21 at its new location in the D.W. Reynolds Library and Technology Center, the exhibit was previously installed at the Bill & Hillary Clinton National Airport. The now permanent fixture highlights the life and work of the former Tuskegee Airman who was a native of Little Rock. A historical figure across the nation, Crenchaw led the first successful flight instructor program at Philander Smith College in the 1940s and 1950s.

Mr. Charles King, VP for Institutional Advancement, and Dr. Michele Wise-Wright, President of the Milton Pitts Crenchaw Aviation Training Academy (MPCATA), led the installation ceremony which was attended by MPCATA Board Members, Philander Smith College faculty, students, staff and members of the community.
