Scholarship Recipient
Enclosed is a photo shot on Friday, September 28 of myself and Barb Mack after my Private Pilot Checkride.  I passed. I would like to once again thank you for that wonderful scholarship gift and let you know the money is going to continuing my education as I begin now for my IFR training. Like I said when presented with the award, it's great to have the support from organizations such as Wings of the North.  With groups like yours keeping the history of aviation in the forefront, hopefully more people will take an active interest in flying.  I also applaud the effort you display in keeping the memory of James Dubay alive through your scholarship efforts.
