The Toledo Weak Signals club of Toledo, Ohio, has
been honored for raising and donating money to the
AMA scholarship program for many years.
The club was presented the AMA Legion of Honor
award during its annual event, the Toledo Show: R/C
Model Expo, held April 7-9, 2017. This year was the
show’s 63rd anniversary.
“I gave the Legion of Honor award to the Toledo
Weak Signals because no other organization has given so much, over so long a
period, to benefit AMA and our youth,” wrote AMA Executive Vice President Gary
Fitch. “Their generosity in giving annual scholarship money to AMA spans decades.
The Toledo Weak Signals Club award is given each year to the top three AMA
scholarship recipients. To learn more about AMA’s scholarship program, visit www.
