2023 Scholarship Recipients

Dylan Pirnie got into aviation when he took power mechanics. Because he liked his power mechanics teacher a lot, he wanted to take more of her classes. Those other classes just happened to be aviation related. Near the end of the year, he learned about the Duncan Aviation internship, so he asked his teacher about it. It was an offer he couldn’t refuse; free work experience and the high chance of getting a job. 

Benjamin Harwood is graduating senior from North Star High School. He has a passion for aviation and is pursuing a career as a pilot. He will attend Ignite Flight Academy in the fall.
