WASHINGTON, D.C. –U.S. Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) today congratulated Monroe native, Mason Andrews, for setting a new world record as the youngest solo pilot to complete a circumnavigation of the globe.
Andrews set out on his circumnavigation to raise awareness and funds for MedCamps, which is a free summer camp for children with disabilities or illnesses. Andrews departed from Monroe on July 22 and returned to Monroe Saturday.
“Mason’s journey is a noble and adventurous feat!” said Sen. Kennedy. “I am happy to hear Mason returned back to Monroe safely. His courage and dedication earned him a new world record and helped raise over $25,000 for Louisiana Medcamps. This is an incredible accomplishment.”
