Scholarship Winner: Devin Starr
By Andrew Vogeney
Last month you met Austin Dunagan, one of the six young men and women you, our members, helped support in their aviation education. Thanks to your help he is closer today than he was yesterday!
And so is Devin Starr, this month’s featured scholarship winner:
“I have wanted to fly since I was a little kid. I wasn't able to make that a reality until somewhat recently. It’s been 3 years since I got my private pilot certificate, and now, with the APA's help, I am finally getting close to the end of my commercial training. Thank you for choosing me for this scholarship. It helps me immensely.”
Devin is currently hard at work as an A&P while continuing to go to school to become an airline pilot. He’s working on the airliners he aspires to fly in the near future! And his work ethic is no surprise – Devin enlisted in the Marine Corps straight out of high school as a Harrier avionics technician. His application for our scholarship came highly recommended by his teachers and peers as a skilled pilot, mechanic and leader among his peers.
