It was never Moriah Graham’s intention to break barriers when she started on the path to her pilot’s license.

But the 17-year-old Polytech High School student achieved new heights, becoming the state’s first African American woman to obtain a pilot’s license while in high school, said Delaware Aviation Hall of Fame officials.

Now, the 2015 graduate is on her way to Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach. It happens to be the alma mater of Patrice Clarke, the first black woman to fly for a major commercial airline.
