tuskegee next trailblazer award

At this year’s Red Tail Ball we will proudly present the second annual Tuskegee NEXT Trailblazer Award.

This distinguished award is given in recognition of a lifetime commitment to embody the spirit of the Tuskegee Airmen: Determination, Excellence, Perseverance and Integrity. The award honors distinguished leadership in breaking down barriers, increasing access, and providing new opportunities for all people.

We are honored to present this year's Trailblazer Award to Captain Albert T. Glenn, retired FedEx 777 pilot.

From mentoring younger pilots to leading aviation education programs, Captain Glenn has shared his zeal for flying and the commercial airliner cockpit, where fewer than two percent of American pilots are African-American.

Please watch the video below to learn more about this remarkable Trailblazer.

Presenting Captain Glenn with this award will be an incredible honor, guaranteed to make this year's event a night to remember.
