Ann Stricklin – Emily Howell Warner’s name would honor Granby Airport

To the Editor:

I feel that naming of the Granby Airport for Emily Howell Warner is a Grand idea. Emily has great fondness for Grand County and is very much a supporter.

She has spent much time here that began at a young age with her family. Emily is so humble about her achievements and yet willing to share her knowledge and experiences when asked. I personally knew her at least two years before I realized all that she had accomplished and then others told me of her history before I began to question her about all her experiences.

Even though retired, Emily is generous to give speeches to school children and organizations without monetary compensation. She has shared many articles, books and videos with me to present to school children and has even come to speak to children in Tranquillity, Calif.

Emily made a film for private pilots dealing with high altitude aviation. This is a great benefit to pilots using the Granby Airport. She has many friends in the industry that would feel this is an honor for Emily and for Grand County.
