Hillsborough resident Genevieve Rausch was honored at this evening's Township Committee meeting for her service in the Women's Air Force Service Pilots (WASP)during World War II.

Mayor Frank DelCore presented Ms. Rausch with a proclamation recognizing her contribution to the nation and for making history as one of the first United States Army's female pilots. According to the proclamation, Ms. Rausch flew as a WASP pilot, met Amelia Earhart, and, following the war, was one of the first female aviation writers for "Skyways" magazine where she flew civilian aircraft and reviewed their performance.
