Following generous donations from several individual members and healthy funds conditions overall the Board agreed to sponsor three Fred Kacena Flight Training Awards for 2013.
A number of applications were received and considered by the Selection Committee (Bob Thompson (Chair), Brian Blackwell and Sandy Walther). From their deliberations three awardee’s were selected:
Jason Preston, Nick Kuhn and Morgan Guarneri, picture here with Bob, Sandy and Brian.
Many congratulations to the three awardee’s who, accompanied by parents and friends, accepted their awards at the June Membership Meeting.
‘Navigators’ will assigned to each from the membership, to provide ongoing guidance and encouragement as they undertake their $1,500 Flight Training awards at the New Garden Flight Connection pilot training facility. Our best wishes to them!
We’ll invite them back to a Fall Membership Meeting to give us all an update on their progress.
