The Arkansas Aviation Historical Society (AAHS), in November, presented Aviation Hall of Fame awards to three Arkansans for their dedication given to aviation. They were Zane Anderson, Harold Johnson, and General William Smith.
On the other hand, AAHS presented $18,000 in aviation scholarship to six students. The three thousand dollars per student scholarship is a sought after scholarship in Arkansas. There are two colleges in Arkansas that have aviation degrees. They are Ozarka and Henderson. It is the AAHS plan for 2018 to offer even more of the same size scholarships. Requirements for both the Hall of Fame and scholarship are on the website at www.arkavhs.com
For thirty-four years, AAHS has presented awards to outstanding Arkansans who excelled in Aviation. Now along with that goal, AAHS gives assistance through scholarships to the young aviators who aspire to have a life in aviation.
