“We are pleased to partner with the AZBAA to offer the 2010 Angel MedFlight Scholarship of Excellence in Aviation,” explained Angel MedFlight President Jeremy Freer. “Angel MedFlight has always been committed to excellence through innovation. We believe that the future success of aviation will depend not only on the intelligence of our next generation of industry leaders, but also on their determination and resourcefulness. Therefore, we launched this scholarship to reward individuals who demonstrate the tenacity and ability to rise above a challenging circumstance to pursue an aviation-related career.”
