U.S. Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) congratulated eight Pennsylvanians selected to attend the 2022 Air Force Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFJROTC) Flight Academy Program. The selected students are Junior ROTC cadets, who showed exemplary leadership, and were accepted into a special summer program for flight training.

“It’s a great honor to congratulate the eight Pennsylvania students awarded scholarships to attend the prestigious 2022 Air Force Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps Flight Academy Program. I am impressed by these young Americans’ selfless commitment to service and their success inside and outside the classroom. I look forward to hearing about the accomplishments of these young men and women in the future,” said Senator Toomey.

Those selected include: Cadets Joseph Bevivino (Central York High School), Ethan Byrne (North Allegheny Intermediate High School), Emma Killmeyer (Plum Senior High School), Sarah Love (Muhlenberg High School), Ava Puschnigg (Ligonier Valley Senior High), Curtis Rhoten (North Allegheny Intermediate High School), Sierra Taylor (Central York High School), and Jett Witte (Central York High School).

These eight Pennsylvanians stood out among 1,300 applicants to attend an 8-week summer aviation program at one of the partnering universities. If successful, these cadets will earn their Private Pilot Certification (PPC) and take the first step toward a career in aviation.
