Florida College Freshman Will Benefit From The 'Navigate Your Future' Scholarship
The National Air Transportation Foundation (NATF) is proud to announce the first winner of its new Navigate Your Future Scholarship.
The 2012 Navigate Your Future Scholarship has been awarded to Sebastian Perez, an upcoming freshman at Broward College in Fort Lauderdale, FL. Sebastian graduated from Western High School carrying a GPA of 4.73. He was president of the Science Honor Society, a senator in the National Honor Society, and a company commander in JROTC. He has over 200 community service hours. Sebastian is planning to complete a Professional Pilot Associate in Science. As he had already completed some of the required credits for this goal while attending high school, Sebastian plans to fill his class schedule with aviation-related electives to become a well-rounded expert in all aviation related fields.
"This first recipient of our newest scholarship is the kind of individual we like to see coming into the aviation industry. Sebastian should do very well with his career, and we are happy to provide assistance to a well deserving candidate," said National Air Transportation Association (NATA) Director of Safety & Training Amy B. Koranda.
The Navigate Your Future Scholarship was established to assist rising professionals in continuing their education in aviation-related fields. "We announced this scholarship on May 7, 2012, and by the June 29 closing date we were pleased to have received 14 applicants. We applaud the many young aviation enthusiasts among us, and we wish them all the best of luck in navigating their futures to achieve their goals," said NATA Manager of Safety 1st Programs Elizabeth Nicholson.
