4th TSA Flight Scholarship Awarded to Colorado Spaatzen
The TSA Scholarship Committee recently named C/Col Melissa Bland, #1423, as this year’s recipient of the Spaatz Association Aerospace Leadership Scholarship. C/Col Bland will use the $2500 scholarship to complete her training for an FAA Private Pilot certificate. C/Col Bland is a member of Colorado Wing’s Mustang Cadet Squadron.
Thanks to the generosity of Spaatz recipients Wade McClure, #487, Marla Patterson, #101, Texas Wing’s Midland Composite Squadron and many others, the Spaatz Association has awarded $10,000 in scholarships to outstanding CAP cadets over the past four years. Efforts are underway to create an endowment to permanently fund the annual scholarship and possibly increase the number of scholarships to be awarded each year. 30 Aug 2000
