Ruth Calix - North American Dispatch Scholarship Winner!
Ruth Calix

Hi! I’m Ruth Calix, a Latina grad student and aviation enthusiast from Chicago, Illinois. I graduated this past May with a bachelor’s in Aviation Management and am set to graduate with my master’s in Aviation this upcoming winter. I have interned for two airlines, Delta and Southwest, as well as the St. Louis Lambert International Airport. Through all my internships, I was able to shadow dispatchers and learn about their crucial roles in flight operations. As a proud recipient of the North American Flight Control Scholarship, I cannot wait to embark on my journey to receive my own dispatch license!
