OUR SCHOLARSHIP WINNERS ENJOY THEIR ADVENTURE.
"Our daughter absolutely enjoyed the Flight Academy! It was an enlightening experience; she learned so much and was introduced to career fields she didn't even know existed. Her letters home were filled with excitement about what they had done that day and about the things she was looking forward to the following day. The days are very structured which she was fine with but some kids might not be. They were kept busy with activities so there was no time to be bored. She is a vegetarian and she was worried about what they would have for her to eat but they accommodated her and she said the food was very good."
" Both girls had an absolutely fantastic time!! So much so that Ansley has been trying to earn her own money to be able to go again next year! I think that the whole experience was executed perfectly. From registration to getting settled in at the beginning, the exercises and simulations, meal time, sleeping arrangements, all the way through the graduation ceremony on the last day and the tour!! We all appreciate that opportunity and want to express our sincere thanks. Even our one daughter who didn't go wishes she had."
