The Frank Macon Trust exists to financially help those wanting to pursue education and training in skilled trades. For many years, the four-year education has been revered as the best way and only way to have a good career. However, the trade industries provide huge opportunities to many folks who prefer to think creatively, work with their hands, and dive deep into the knowledge of a skill or trade.
Frank Macon himself was a lifelong learner who was also dyslexic. He overcame many challenges, stereotypes, and obstacles in order to become a proud member of the Tuskegee Airmen. As a hardworking doer and an out-of-the-box thinker, Frank Macon believed in the value and honor of hard work and skilled trade. This is why the Frank Macon Trust focuses its funds toward trade schools and skilled industries. These trade careers embody the spirit of learning that Frank Macon valued–and with that in mind, the trust exists to help fuel the dreams of individuals seeking a career in the trade industries.

Whether it’s cosmetology, construction, or plumbing–the trade industries are a world of opportunity for many who do not conform to traditional 4-year college careers. At the same time, the trade industries desperately need more skilled workers.
