Flight for Pennies II is a project designed to form a statewide partnership with other Backpack Projects in Florida. For this project, I will be flying in a Beechcraft B58 Baron and visiting representatives of Backpack Projects and hunger relief projects. Our goal is to unify the efforts of Florida’s backpack projects and hunger relief programs to maximize the amount of donations and the scope of awareness that we can bring to the eradication of child hunger.

My name is Allison McGaugh, and I am a senior at Pensacola High School enrolled in the International Baccalaureate Program. Currently, I am taking the most challenging and rigorous courses of HL Physics, HL Chemistry, and calculus. I am actively involved as a student leader in the Escambia County Backpack Project. I am captain of the PHS varsity softball and weightlifting teams. This past year, I received the awards of Best Defensive Player and Lady Tiger of the Year for my sportsmanship and leadership on the PHS softball team. I am founder and president of the PHS Aviation Club and of the PHS Young Republican Club. As president of the republican club, I had the privilege of organizing my members to volunteer at the December 2017 Trump Rally in Pensacola. I desire to attend the United States Naval Academy to improve my leadership and personal skills. I have been accepted to attend the Naval Academy Summer Seminar this June of 2018, and I have also been accepted into the American Legion Girls State. During this summer, I plan on completing the Flight for Pennies II in order to raise money and awareness for the Backpack Project. During this flight, I will be flying around the state of Florida and connecting with fellow Backpack Projects in the state of Florida to create a statewide partnership of Backpack Projects.
