Aero-News has learned
the Wisconsin Aviation Hall of Fame recently awarded David Linton
and Luke Van Lanen a total of $1500 in scholarship monies to
continue their aviation educations.
David Linton of Elkhorn will receive the $1000 Carl Guell
Memorial Scholarship. Linton is pursuing an Airframe and Powerplant
Mechanic degree from Blackhawk Technical College, Janesville,
Wisconsin. He is moving to aviation after a 30-year career in
computer technology. Linton is an instrument rated pilot and active
in his school and community.
Luke Van Lanen, from Madison, WI will receive the $500 Theissen
Field Scholarship. Van Lanen is also a Blackhawk Technical College
student in the Airframe and Powerplant Mechanic program. He
graduated from St. Cloud State University, St. Cloud, Minnesota, as
a multi-engine commercial, instrument rated pilot. After
graduating, he immediately enrolled in the mechanic program to
“open up a wide range of additional opportunities”.
The Wisconsin Aviation Hall of Fame will award the scholarships
at its annual investiture ceremony and banquet on Saturday, October
14, 2006, at the EAA AirVenture Museum in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
Tickets for the event are available.
The mission statement of the Wisconsin Aviation Hall of Fame is
to collect and preserve the history of aviation in Wisconsin,
recognize those who made that history, inform others of it, and
promote aviation education for future generations.
To date, over 70 men and women have been inducted into the Hall
of Fame since its founding in 1985.
