In observance of Hispanic Heritage Month, Del Mar College’s Social Sciences Department and the Mexican American Studies program present Querer es Poder: (Where There’s a Will There’s a Way) Lieutenant Colonel Olga Custodio’s Quest to Democratize the Sky. Dr. Erinn McComb, assistant professor of history, will discuss how Olga Custodio became the first Latina American woman to graduate from the United States Air Force, the first female pilot instructor of the supersonic T-38, one of the world’s most difficult jets to fly, and the first Latina commercial airline captain for American Airlines. The presentation outlines Custodio’s story as one that not only broke down barriers for women, but also one that gave visibility to Latina women in control of technology, specifically flight technology. This event is free and open to the public.  • Tuesday, Sept. 25, 1 p.m., Room 514, White Library, Del Mar College, East Campus, Naples at Kosar off Staples, free.
