Richard C. Johnston Memorial Scholarship Fund
Our region recently lost a longtime aviation advocate. Richard C. "Dick" Johnston who was the FBO at N38 for 50 years will have a scholarship opened in his honor. A board of trustees were selected at a joint meeting of the Canyon Pilots Association and the Canyon Country Ultralight Club on August 11th. Both clubs agreed to donate 100% of the proceeds from the annual labor day flyin breakfast to help fund the scholarship program. The breakfast attracts nearly 1000 hungry folks and is a great way to open this fund. If you would like to contribute there will be more details posted on this blog as the board of trustees develops the scholarships structure.
