“We believe that Drew is an exemplary student,” stated Kelly LoCascio, Angel MedFlight CEO. “We were impressed by his commitment to his education. In fact, he works two jobs to cover the cost of his tuition and flight instruction. His drive and determination to succeed in the classroom and in the air make him an ideal recipient for the Angel MedFlight Scholarship for Excellence in Aviation. We commend this young man for his achievement and we wish him all the best.”

Angel MedFlight sponsors the annual scholarship through a partnership with the Arizona Business Aviation Association (AZBAA). The award includes $3,000 toward Drew’s tuition and a commemorative plaque.

He has also spent the last five summers working as a swim instructor and lifeguard in Renton, Washington and is described by his supervisor as “a person of great character and ambition.”
