US High School Awards Flight Training Scholarship to Seven Students
Cumberland County High School awarded flight training scholarships to seven students that will cover flight training costs until they obtain their Commercial Pilot Licenses. Approximately $15,000 is allotted to each scholar. This marks the third round of scholarships granted by the Tennessee Department of Education through the Innovative High School Models Grant. An estimated $974,100 was rewarded to Cumberland County Schools.
“Our goal initially was to license 45 students. We’re not sure if we’re going to hit that mark because it’s a growing process,” said Scott Maddox, the school system’s director of Career and Technical Education.
Also, the school partners with Azure Flight Support who will provide career path to students who do not have enough funds to cover pilot training costs.
