Approach Plaque

The Class of '44 and the Curtiss-Wright Cadettes hosted a reception during Reunion '99 in June to celebrate the restoration of The Approach, a project to which the class devoted considerable enthusiasm and generous financial support. In addition, the class was instrumental in having the WWII war memorial plaque moved from the Houston Field House to The Approach. Class members posed with a photograph of the memorial plaque at the Reunion ceremony. "The Approach was part of our lives and daily activities," said Joe Klope '44 at the ceremony. "We were among the last to have an emotional and practical involvement with The Approach."
