In 1940 Peggy Jo Ansel was the only woman in a class of men at Baldwin-Wallace College (now known as Baldwin Wallace University) in Berea, Ohio, to successfully complete an aeronautics course and to earn her private pilot’s license. She graduated magna cum laude from Baldwin-Wallace, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in German.

Later, she earned a bachelor of science in education degree from Ashland College in Ashland, Ohio — and she was very active in Girl Scouts, the Lexington Presbyterian Church, and other organizations.

Peggy Jo just recently had an adventure at Mid-Ohio Sports Car course in Lexington, Ohio. “First of all, I was puzzled as to why my daughter drove her car into Mid-Ohio. Quickly I learned that an adventure was in store for me. I’ve driven past Mid-Ohio innumerable times over the years in route to and back home from the farm that my late son Scott and his wife Carolyn owned, and I was always curious as to just what was ‘back there.’ Well, I just had a ball! It was so much fun, even though Max didn’t drive faster than 75 miles per hour–it seemed quite fast. And I really enjoyed going up into the tower and looking out over the surrounding area. The Mid-Ohio folks were just as delightful as could be, too!”
