2019 Aviation Pathways Scholarship Celebration

Thank you to everyone attending along with the financial supports who made it possible for the first two aviation scholarships to be awarded!


The Aviation Pathways 2019 Scholarship Celebration was held at the Rochester International Airport! The event will featured static aircraft displays on the airport ramp and the opportunity to meet local pilots and aviation enthusiasts. Everyone present celebrated the awarding of scholarships to two 2019 RCTC Pilot Program students!

The highlight of the evening was the keynote speaker Julie Clarke - the world-famous American aerobatic airshow pilot, former Northwest Airlines captain and Minnesota native!
