Dr. John Clark established the John Alden Clark and Marie Mountain Clark Scholarship to help students interested in aviation, math, and science afford the cost of higher education. Dr. John Clark was a professor of mechanical engineering at the University of Michigan, and is an accomplished World War II veteran, having flown with the 8th Air Force as a B-17 copilot. Marie Mountain Clark was an accomplished musician and dedicated World War II pilot. Marie was a member of the Women’s Air Force Service Pilots (WASP), the first women to serve as pilots in the United States’ Air Force. The John Alden Clark and Marie Mountain Clark Scholarship fund is intended to last for 15-20 years, helping students realize their goals in the fields of aviation, math and science.
