This copy is inscribed by the author. "Earline is the perfect example of a flying grandmother. I first met Earline shortly after she had taken a flight with the Chief Administrator of our school. Although I had seen her previously while I was working with other students, I didn't know what she was doing at the school or what rating she was pursuing. All I knew was that she looked very prepared for whatever she was studying. Actually, I thought she was getting ready for a flight review." "Professor Earline Ames served Sacramento State from 1968 until her retirement in 1983. She was a respected member of the faculty in what was then known as the School of Education, where she also served as chair of the Department of Behavioral Sciences in Education. She was later appointed Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs. Dr. Amesís faculty colleagues recall her forthright communication style and her vibrant leadership. Earline Ames received her undergraduate degree from Baylor, masterís degree from San Francisco State, and Ph. D. From Stanford University. Her career in teaching lasted 36 years. She continued to take on new challenges even in retirement; in 1998 she co-authored When Grandma Learned to Fly, A Flight Instructorís Nightmare, about her experiences gaining a private pilotís certificate at the age of 75. Dr. Ames passed away in Rocklin in August 2007." ; Signed by Author
