Class Notes

Shanda Carney Fanning Shanda Carney Fanning (’99) was one of two pilots who died August 14, 2013, when a United Parcel Service airplane crashed in Birmingham, Ala. Described as a country girl at heart who loved to ride horses and who had wanted to fly airplanes from a very young age, Fanning was 37 at the time of her death. She is survived by her husband, Bret Fanning, who works in distribution at Jack Daniel’s Distillery in Lynchburg. In the aftermath of her death, Fanning’s best friend, fellow MTSU alum Whitney Dix, also a pilot and a dispatch manager with Southwest Airlines in Texas, is spearheading a drive to establish the Shanda Carney Fanning Aviation Memorial Scholarship at MTSU. Nearly $50,000 has been raised to endow the scholarship, which will be awarded annually to aviation students studying in MTSU’s nationally known aerospace program. The goal is to begin awarding it for the 2014–15 academic year. The long-term goal is to increase the award to the University’s Centennial Scholarship level, which requires a $100,000 endowment. Anyone interested in giving to the scholarship fund can do so online at www.mtsu.edu/fanningscholarship. MTSU
