Congratulations to our 2020 Cascade Warbirds Memorial Scholarship winners!

It is our pleasure to introduce our next crop of aviation students.

Candace Do lives in Bellevue and is a senior at Newport High School. She’s also a Running Start student at Bellevue CC; her ultimate goal is astronautics.

Harrison Pulido lives in Lynnwood and is a junior at Bothell High School. He hopes to become a commercial pilot as well as an aerospace engineer.

Inayah Farooqi is from Redmond and is a junior in the Cambridge Pro-gram at Juanita High School. With aspirations to become a pilot, she’s considering the Air Force as one way to do so.

Riley Brux, living in Auburn, is a recent graduate of Auburn Riverside High School and ultimately plans to become an astronaut. He’s currently working full time to fund his college education.

Through our scholarship partner, Galvin Flying, each of these students will receive a private pilot ground school, including books and supplies, and two instructional flights.

Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we had to cancel our March membership meeting, at which we would have introduced these deserving young people, presented them with their certificates, and taken a lovely group photo. Once the flight training environment returns to normal, we wish these scholars the best on their first steps to new aviation heights!
