16 October Raised in Atlanta, Pam Epstein graduated from Georgia State University with a BS degree in Education. She taught 4th grade in the Atlanta Public Schools before going to work for Delta Airlines on July 6, 1970 as a flight attendant. Pam was a Delta flight attendant working a flight from Amsterdam to Atlanta which was diverted to Hallifax, Nova Scotia on 9/11/01. They were locked out of their country and could not come home for three days. Operation Yellow Ribbon went into effect in Canada to protect, feed, house all the diverted people and aircraft. Hallifax had 47 airplanes and 7200 people who descended on them. In her presentation, Pam will discuss her experiences.
