What's in a Number? K E L L Y M U R P H Y W het her it wa s your f irst time at- tend in g t he WA I c on ferenc e in 2018 or your 20th, you t ypically feel re-energized and reconnected with a very special group of people you will con- tinue to call friends and mentors for many years ahead. I was pleased to bring those feelings back from Reno, along with a stack of business cards, notes, and new story ideas for our magazines and social media. In this issue, we've provided the highlights of our trademark three-day gathering in the confer- ence report starting on Page 24. If you weren't able to attend this year, check out all the #WAI18 social media posts so you can share in that same energy and those connections that took place in the ex- hibit hall, local tours, education sessions, and so- cial and networking events. Special congratulations to this year's recipients of 142 scholarships totaling $695,500 in awards! The full list is included on Pages 36-37. And for the younger attendees, check out the unlimited smiles and laughs of more than 200 local girls who par- ticipated in Girls in Aviation Day Reno on Page 34. Our cover story on Tahirah Lamont Brown gives you an in-depth look at her inspiring jour- ney to become FedEx's first African-American fe- male pilot. Stepping back in time, the story on Hedy Lamarr describes how a 1940s Hollywood film actress used her talents as an avid commu- nications technology inventor that led to today's Wi-Fi, GPS, and Bluetooth. Looking for more idea s to jump-st art the middle of 2018? Our regular columnists deliver some finely crafted messages including Meg God - lewski's strategy on handling client ghosting at the FBO; Devan Norris' view on being one of the guys; and Patricia Luebke's idea to welcome sum- mer by planning a party with family and friends. I hope you'll find a number of meaningful mes- sages in this issue. As a valued WAI member, I'm al- ways interested to hear from you at kmurphy@wai. org.
