"By awarding me the Dave McCloud Aviation Memorial Scholarship, you have lightened the financial burden that causes so many veterans to withdraw from their pursuit of a higher education. The award of this scholarship will ensure that I will be able to finish my degree as scheduled, and can readily bring the knowledge and skills gained from my education and experience to the changing world of aviation.” ~ Lindsey Loewen, UAA, recipient of Dave McCloud Aviation Memorial Scholarship
