Atlantic Aviators Aviation & STEM Scholarship Recipients - 2010

Atlantic Aviators Aviation & STEM Scholarship Recipient Andrew Davis

The Atlantic Aviators are proud to announce the 2010 recipients of the Atlantic Aviators Aviation & STEM Scholarship: Andrew Davis and Sarah Walsh.

Andrew Davis will be entering his freshman year at Purdue University’s School of Engineering this fall. He is pursuing a B.S. in Engineering, with a specialization in Aeronautics and Astronautics.

“To me, there is nothing more rewarding than taking my ideas and shaping them into something tangible,” he states. “I aspire to look at an airplane and call it mine – to be able to say that I turned my ideas into something real.”

During his high school career, Andrew was a member of the Academy of Model Aeronautics, played varsity baseball and soccer, served as class Vice President, and tutored others in Algebra and Geometry. We wish him great success in the years to come!

Atlantic Aviators Aviation & STEM Scholarship Recipient Sarah Walsh

Sarah Walsh will be attending the Commonwealth Honors College at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst beginning this fall. There she will be studying Engineering and Environmental Science.

“I want to go into Green Energy Development because I also want to fix many of the problems I see today,” She explains. “Growing up seeing the harmful consequences of international conflict has made me realize that a lot of it has sprouted out of our country’s dependence on foreign imports of oil.”

Sarah has volunteered her time to tutor others in her high school Math lab, served as Sports Editor of the school newspaper, and was the captain of the 2009-2010 varsity field hockey team. Her passion for environmental issues and her determination to make a difference in her community are evident and we are excited to support her as she begins her college career.
