Robert Ewing, Farragut’s Aviation Academy director, and retired U.S. Marine Corps Lt. Col. Charles Schwarm, who graduated from Farragut in 1992, are featured as two of the Super Seven standouts in the 2016 spring issue of Lift, the alumni magazine of Embry-Riddle University.
Ewing and Schwarm were honored back in the fall at the respective campuses of Daytona Beach and Prescott during the school’s 2015 homecoming festivities.
Ewing, who was instrumental in creating the aviation program at Farragut and establishing a dual-enrollment program with Embry-Riddle, received the Alumni Service Award for his commitment and enthusiasm for the university through service, support, leadership and recruitment. He graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Aeronautical Science and is currently enrolled in the Master of Aeronautical Science program at Embry-Riddle’s Worldwide Campus.
Schwarm, who has logged more than 2,300 military flight hours in five types of aircraft, was presented with the Military Achievement Award for his outstanding service to the country. After 17 years of active duty service, he retired from the Marine Corps in 2014 and is now a pilot for GoJet.
