UBAA is pleased to announce our scholarship winners for 2020. As part of our mission and commitment to education, we offer scholarships to area students, made possible by donations of member organizations, the proceeds of our events, and the efforts of the organization as a whole. In 2020, we have awarded scholarships to five deserving recipients:
Liam’s interest in aviation began while growing up watching airlines fly over his home into Boston Logan Airport. He is a first generation college student, studying hard to obtain his degree at Westminster College in Flight Operations. One of his future aviation goals is to help make the aviation industry more accessible to low income students, and those who may not have connections in the industry.
Allie became hooked on flying after taking a discovery flight on a whim, and knew that is what she wanted to do from that point on . Her interest in business aviation was began after attending the NBAA conference in Las Vegas, and realized the vast array of opportunities within the business aviation world. She enjoys the more personal aspect and relationships of business aviation.
Isabella’s passion for aviation began after an injury sidelined her while training for the Winter Olympics in Slopestyle Skiing. She then re-directed her focus and passion towards aviation at Westminster College. Due to her hard work, she will graduate with a major in Flight Operations, and a minor in Aviation Management.
Lewis always dreamed of being a pilot, but due to costs and other concerns he wasn’t sure it was attainable. When a friend talked to him about the Utah Valley University flight program, it re-lit the fire inside him. He then did everything necessary to begin flying. Lewis is looking forward to helping people fulfill their love for travel, see the world, experience new things, and see different cultures. His dream job would be flying for Nike out of Beaverton Oregon, where he grew up.
Richard grew up around aviation his entire life, although his desire to work in the aviation industry didn’t begin until he joined a Helitack crew while working for the U.S. Forest Service. Working with multiple different kinds of helicopters rekindled the joy of aviation for him. He has completed his Airframe in the Aviation Maintenance program at Salt Lake Community College, and is actively working on his Powerplant.
