Pasco Education Foundation's Take Stock in Children Scholarship program, with the financial support of the Florida Air Museum at Sun 'n Fun, provided five $675 scholarships to the "Destination Aviation" summer camp in Lakeland. The week-long camp focused on math, science and technology skills leading to a career in the fields of aviation, aerospace and engineering. The highlight of the camp occurred when each scholar was put at the controls of an airplane to fly over Central Florida. Camp participants were: Austin Lewis, Pasco High; Aaron Youpa, J.W. Mitchell High; John Naclerio, River Ridge High; Byron Capehart, Wesley Chapel High; and Joshua Link, Ridgewood High.
