About this Item

"When John Odegard applied for admission to the University of North Dakota more than 40 years ago, his credentials were almost a joke. He'd already dropped out of two other colleges with poor grades and a complete lack of interest. What he really wanted to do was to fly airplanes, and, in fact was earnig a meager living at the time as a crop duster in western North Dakota. Even so, the university's vice-president Tom Clifford, was impressed by Odegard's passion for flying-and by the determination of his young wife, Diane, that her husband get his college degree. Against the advice of others at UND, Clifford admitted Odegard and even becamer his mentor. The gamble pain off. Within three years Odegard had easrned his degree and begun a fledging department of aviation-all with the blessing of Clifford who would become the president of UND and continue to support his protege's dreams. Forty years later, the John D. Odegard School of Aerospace Sciences stands on the prairie outside of Grand Forks, N.D., as one of the world's premier institutions for educating future leaders in the aerospace and aviation industries." This book has 352 pages and is illustrated throughout. Bookseller Inventory # 059774
