Flagler Students Awarded Scholarships for National Flight Academy

Friday, June 23, 2017 - 12:17pm

Flagler Beach City Commissioners congratulated eight Flagler students Thursday evening and awarded them scholarships for the National Flight Academy. This is the second year the City of Flagler Beach has offered this scholarship for students in grades 7-12. Last year, they handed out one.


Honored at the meeting were: Cody Michaux (Flagler Palm Coast High), Douglas Bentley (Matanzas High), Kale Britton (Matanzas High), David Labron (Matanzas High), Garrett Linton (Flagler Palm Coast High), Megan Brink (Matanzas High), Grace Ledrich (Matanzas High), and Olivia Whitten (Flagler Palm Coast High). These students will attend a week-long camp this summer at the National Flight Academy, which is located adjacent Naval Air Station Pensacola. These students will be immersed in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math programs (STEM) during the camp, which simulated life on a giant aircraft carrier.


Flagler Beach City Manager Larry Newsome says “We cannot thank Flagler Schools enough for helping us find these deserving students. We hope all our local governments can work together and send even more students to this camp next year.”
