Boy Scouts of America National Aviation Exploration Committee Awarded $ 5,000 National Aviation Exploration Scholarship to Bella Groh of Demossville
Groh started scouting several years ago when she heard about the Aviation Exploration Program through the Young Eagles Program. She began attending the Dan Beard Council’s Aviation Exploring Post 78 meetings, chartered by Sporty’s Aviation, where she was able to discuss her interests with a wide variety of guest speakers who are professionals in their fields.
The speakers and its leaders had an impact on Groh, who recently started at Purdue University as a freshman year in astronautical engineering. Aviation Exploring has given Groh the opportunity to connect with a wide range of people from various backgrounds in the aviation industry.
