Photo #15023 | JoelleJoelle is a delightful young woman who has been actively pursuing her private license. I (Ken Sorenson) have been her primary instructor at the Soaring Club of Houston. She soloed in Nov 2017 and has been working steadily on her flying and knowledge skills ever since.  We are planning to complete her practical test this Spring or early summer. She is very appreciative of the scholarship she received and is aware of the commitment it implies (as evidenced by her HISD-day support).
