President Pilot International

We are deeply sad to report our Pilot Florida District Governor has
passed away as a result of health issues. Barbara Keck had a dream to become the Governor
and she was so proud to fulfill that dream. Her installation was beautiful with the theme of
Peacocks. We offer our condolences to her family and her Pilot Club of Fort Pierce. With this
news, the Governor Elect Missy Ridgway of the Pilot Club of Ocala will assume the position as
Governor. We offer our total support and know Missy is able to lead the Florida District.
Also Lt. Governor Sharon Nooney had to resign in early July due to health issues. The DAC is
pleased that Georgia Reed from the Pilot Club of Jacksonville agreed to accept the appointment
to fill this position for the 2023-2024 Pilot Year.
