John Marshall Bank Sponsors the Tuskegee Airmen in Bringing the Traveling RISE ABOVE Exhibit to Prince William County
Reston, VA — John Marshall Bank (“JMB” or the “Bank”), subsidiary of John Marshall Bancorp, Inc. (the “Company”) (Nasdaq: JMSB),is proud to announce the Bank is one of the sponsors bringing the Tuskegee Airmen, the Women Airforce Service Pilots (“WASP”), and the RISE ABOVE Traveling Exhibit to Prince William County from August 21 to August 27, 2023. The RISE ABOVE exhibit tells the story of the Tuskegee Airmen and WASP as they rose above adversity and the clouds to serve the country during World War II.
The Tuskegee Airmen, America’s first black military pilots, and WASP, pioneering women who served in the U.S. Air Force with tremendous distinction, have a unique blend of history, legacy, and modern application that the RISE ABOVE exhibit inspires to the communities it visits. Bringing together local organizations, community leaders and dignitaries, and community members, RISE ABOVE provides education for people of all ages on how the stories of the Airmen and WASP are applicable today.
The exhibit, which is free to enter and held at the Manassas Airport, will feature RISE ABOVE’s mobile movie theater which has a panoramic screen and shows films on the history of the Tuskegee Airmen and WASP, detailing the obstacles they overcame in order to fly and fight for America while giving viewers the feeling of sitting in the cockpit of a fighter plane. Additionally, the Tuskegee Airmen’s iconic “Red Tail” P-51 Mustang will be on display for visitors. As part of the event, a raffle sponsored, in part by John Marshall Bank, will be held to give a visitor the chance to take part in history and fly in the Mustang with a member of RISE ABOVE.
RISE ABOVE aims to provide the communities it visits with the same sense of perseverance and courage that the Airmen and WASP had as they faced every obstacle in their way with hard work and dedication. This community focus aligns with the Bank’s goal of enriching the communities it serves and the Bank is honored to be among the organizations bringing this historic event to Prince William County.
