The Zak Quappe Flight Scholarship has received a $3,000 donation from Trees4Life.
The Trees4Life enterprise was set up by husband and wife team Kelly and Jeff McGlashan, who donated a portion of the proceeds from the sale of imported Christmas trees toward the flight scholarship, which supports young Caymanians seeking to earn a private pilot’s license.
The scholarship, awarded annually for between US$12,000 and US$15,000, covers costs such as flight school, training flights and travel expenses to and from the United States.
The scholarship was set up by the family of Zak Quappe, a local commercial pilot and flight instructor who died in 2013.
