Kenny Clay is a certified flight instructor and is pursuing a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering at UAB. He grew up in Trussville, Alabama, and graduated from Hewitt-Trussville High School in June 2017. After graduating from high school, he enlisted in the Air National Guard. His enlistment helped him obtain a solid work ethic and military experience.
His ANG job in avionics helped him work with equipment dealing with electrical engineering principles. The job provided him with the technical job experience that a classroom setting can not duplicate.
The enlistment opened many opportunities: College tuition assistance, the ability to climb through the ranks to become a guard pilot, and most of all the Red Tail Scholarship.
