Fort Worth, TX- Texas Wing Conference was held Saturday, April 18 2015 at the DFW Marriott South.  Senior members and cadets attended various classes and had opportunities to see presentations by exceptional speakers including Air Force personnel, Lockheed Martin engineers, and Wing Command.  Highlights included the presentation of Congressional Gold Medal replicas to WWII CAP honorees, meeting CAP member and aviation pioneer, Col Mary Feik, and observing the Change of Command Ceremony installing Col Steve Hudson as Texas Wing Commander.

Feik is credited with becoming the first woman engineer in research and development in the Air Technical Service Command’s Engineering Division.

She's accomplished so much but here's what she says about her proudest moment, in 2003: "My ultimate honor [is] the Civil Air Patrol cadet achievement created in my name."
