2008 Scholarship Winner Lauren
have completed my first year at the University of North Dakota, where I
am pursuing a degree in Mechanical Engineering with an emphasis in
Aerospace. Receiving a National Aviation Exploring
Scholarship is helping me to pay for my required flight classes and
other university costs. I would like to thank the Aviation
Exploring Program and in particular the Post 9924 advisors for opening
my eyes to the world of aviation, and the Scholarship selection
committee for helping me financially pursue my aviation career goals of
becoming an engineer and pilot/astronaut for the U S Air Force and NASA.
