Financial Angels Among Us – “Give Back”

02 December 2009   William Thompson, ERAU

leonnoeFormer resident, Leon R. Noe, a lifelong pilot and founder of several marketing publication companies, understands the importance of “giving back.”

Now, many years later, Noe is giving $100,000 to help Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University students in Prescott, Arizona get the right start with their education and career plans. The Arizona campus of Embry- Riddle Aeronautical University is proud to announce this show of support and additional opportunities for service men and Women. Embry-Riddle’s reputation for education in aviation, engineering, space physics, meteorology, management, global security and intelligence, and other related aviation and aerospace programs is second to none. The Prescott, Arizona campus established in 1978 has one of the best pilot training, engineering, education, and living environments in the country

Noe, who relocated to Prescott, Arizona, became acquainted with many Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University students through a common interest in aviation.

Noe started looking for ways to help these up-and-coming leaders in the aviation industry. Noe’s search led him to take advantage of the Pension Protection Act Of 2006 and the Post-9/11 G.I. Bill’s Yellow Ribbon Program.

“I have always been a proud patriotic American, having served in the Army paratroopers with the 82nd Airborne Division,” said Noe. “I am an enthusiastic supporter of all veteran programs.”

Noe directed his gift to support returning servicemen and women seeking a degree at Embry-Riddle’s Prescott campus, as well as senior-level students who need financial help to continue at the university.
