OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla._A portrait of a Marlow native who made history as a teenage pilot nearly 100 years ago, was unveiled at the state capitol Wednesday.
Pearl Scott learned how to fly at the age of 13 from famed aviator Wiley Post and became the youngest pilot in United States history in 1929. She may have earned her fame for what she did in the air, however, what her family is most proud of is what she did on the ground in working with the Chickasaw Nation.
Friends and family gathered in the Oklahoma State House Chamber to not only celebrate her aviation career but to focus on what she did after it. Pearl Carter Scott left mark on not only the Chickasaw Nation and Marlow, but Oklahoma as a whole.
Her friends and family described her first not as an aviator but as a selfless woman willing to do anything for anyone. She fell in love with aviation at the age of twelve but at nineteen she would give it up.
Pearl was elected and served three terms in the Chickasaw legislature, during that time she helped oversee tremendous growth in tribal operations and services. Pearl Carter Scott is a member of the Oklahoma Aviation and Space hall of fame along with the Chickasaw Nation hall of fame.
Chris Nick--recently finished a portrait for the state capitol of Pearl Carter Scott who was a young teenage Chickasaw aviator during the late 20s and early 30s.

Pearl Scott is a member of the Chickasaw Nation Hall of Fame and was remembered Saturday afternoon at the Natchez Trace Visitor's Center in Tupelo.
Scott was born in Marlow, Oklahoma in 1915, the daughter of a wealthy businessman named George Carter.
So spectacular is her story, that the Chickasaw Nation made a movie about her called "Pearl".
They showed that movie at the Natchez Trace Visitors Center Saturday.
The movie depicts Pearl as a lively 12-year-old driving her father's car.
Her father was blind and did not have a problem allowing Pearl to drive.
By age 13, she could fly a plane as well as any man, and was trained by legendary aviator Wiley Post, a family friend.
Scott continued to fly becoming a main attraction throughout the nation.
She continued aerial exploits and became a stunt pilot after she marrried a local farm boy at the age of fourteen.
Scott thought about becoming a skydiver but here father and husband nixed that idea.
She gave up her wings for good following a near-tragic accident during an air show.
Scott later became a member of the Chickasaw legislature.
