Lauren Haag - 2008 Scholarship Winner2008 Scholarship Winner Lauren Haag

I 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.
