Marcellus Lee Freeman, a college freshman from Chicago, loves planes. He spends hours on flight simulators, and more hours building and flying model airplanes (he belongs to the Chicago Model Masters).

But it’s the real stuff he aspires to fly—his goal is to be a commercial pilot, as well as a certified flight instructor so that he can help others.

Tuskegee NEXT facilitated his transition from the simulators to the skies.
