Happy 92nd Birthday, Mae Sue!

Mae Sue grew up in a household where she developed a strong foundation of courage, confidence and character.

Mae Sue designed an ejection seat for the Air Force, opened Phoenix Country Day School, partnered with Sandra Day O’Connor in fighting for women’s rights and so much more!
