Air Force Cadets fly high with scholarship

January 23, 2019

Lexington, SC - After winning an Air Force scholarship, Lexington District One students Collin Davis and Heath McDonald will take to the skies this year.

 

Davis, a senior at River Bluff High, and McDonald, a junior at Lexington High, received a Chief of Staff of the Air Force Flight Academy scholarship. Both are cadets in LHS’s Air Force Junior ROTC, led by retired Lt. Col. Bobby R. McDonald.

 

More than 1,560 cadets applied for one of 150 scholarships.

 

Valued at approximately $20,000, the scholarship covers transportation, room and board, academics and flight hours required to earn a private pilot’s license through the Flight Academy. Providing scholarships to future pilots coincides with an Air Force-level initiative in collaboration with the commercial aviation industry to address the national civilian and military pilot shortage.

 

Those who participate in the program do not incur a military commitment to the Air Force or other branch of service, nor does completing the program guarantee acceptance into one of the military’s commissioning programs.
