The Boy Scouts of America’s National Aviation Exploring Committee has presented Demossville-based Bella Groh with a $ 5,000 National Aviation Exploring Scholarship Award
Groh started scouting a few years ago when she heard about the Aviation Exploring program through the Young Eagles program. She began attending meetings at the Dan Beard Council’s Aviation Exploring Post 78, chartered by Sporty’s Aviation, where she was able to test her interests with a variety of guest speakers who are active in her field.
The speakers and their leaders influenced Groh, who recently started studying space engineering as a freshman at Purdue University. Aviation Exploring gave Groh the opportunity to connect with a wide range of people from different backgrounds in the aviation sector.
Exploring is a unique career exploration program for young men and women aged 10 to 20 that offers students the opportunity to learn about a variety of professional fields and network with professionals. They gain hands-on experience to determine whether or not a particular career path is right for them.
The students build valuable network contacts with professionals in selected professional fields and get to know other young people with the same interests and ambitions. Exploring is the first step in identifying career opportunities while having fun in an exciting and informal environment.
The Boy Scouts of America’s National Aviation Exploring Committee awards individual grants of between $ 5,000 and $ 10,000 annually to recognize excellence in aviation. The sponsors who award the scholarships are committed to the future leadership of aviation.
Each researcher who applies must demonstrate that they can successfully complete the aviation career training activity for which they are applying for scholarships and demonstrate their commitment to life skills, citizenship, leadership and character building experiences that contribute to the quality of life.
