Sue Brown served as the 2012-2013 President of the AFOWC. Tragically, she and her husband, Maj General Joe Brown were killed in an airplane crash on April 19, 2013.
Sue was a strong supporter of the scholarships and higher education. She served as the Scholarship Chair while stationed at Offutt AFB and was a dedicated member of the AFOWC scholarship committee during her time as president.
With the blessing of her parents and children, the AFOWC chose to honor and recognize her service and dedication to higher education through the establishment of the Sue Brown Memorial Scholarship Fund.
