I am Zarren Riley, an alumnus from the illustrious Tuskegee University where I disciplined in Aerospace Engineering. I am an Atlanta Georgia native raised in the town of McDonough. Coming from an Air Force family, the Air Force has been a big part of my life. I have the greatest ambitions of being a profound fighter pilot in the U.S. Air Force. I am currently an Air Force student pilot in Undergraduate Pilot Training. There is nothing better than waking up in the morning and being surrounded by planes and pilots with the same motivation to fly. RTSF has given me an aviation foundation that I am extremely grateful for. This scholarship program has allowed me to build focus, character, and a hard work ethic that will continue with me throughout my career. Being part of our family at the Red Tails Scholarship Foundation has changed my life. We continually challenge and teach each other new things that only make us stronger and sharper. This way when many of us go our separate paths we represent a heritage and legacy that we have proudly entrusted to one another. Every day we strive to be a better pilots then we were the day before wether that is in books or in the plane. I am thankful that those traits were instilled in me when I joined RTSF. I am very grateful to be to apart of the Red Tails Scholarship Foundation. This is just the beginning of a long and exciting journey that started with your generosity. Your donations and support has allowed many young men and woman like myself to reach goals and ambitions set forth that may not have had the opportunity we have now without this successful program. For that, we are grateful and we say thank you!!
