Current Scholarship Recipients

Emily Bennett
2017 Thiessen Field Scholarship
2017 Jeff Baum Aviation Management Scholarship

Emily, of Cedar Grove, Wisconsin, is receiving WAHF's $500 Thiessen Field Scholarship and the $500 Jeff Baum Aviation/Aerospace Scholarship. She is a freshman student at Southern Illinois University, Carbondale, Illinois, majoring in Aviation Flight Management. Upon graduation, she hopes to become a first officer for a regional airline to accumulate hours before moving up to a major airline. To help fund her college education, Emily has been working since her freshman year, at one point working two jobs during her sophomore year, to save for her college expenses. Emily says, "These flight costs will add up to nearly $90,000 over the course of four years. I am solely responsible for paying for my education because of family circumstances."

Matthew Reuter
2017 Carl Guell Memorial Scholarship

Matthew, of Medford, has a goal of becoming a certificated flight instructor and corporate pilot. He's a freshman student at University of Dubuque majoring in Flight Operations. Matthew has taken flight training with Wausau Flying Service at the Wausau Downtown Airport (KAUW). One of Matthew's flight instructors, Gil Buettner, says, "I mistakenly assumed Matthew was several years older than he is because his confidence and use of standardized procedures was very professional. This is a very thoughtful, dedicated aviation enthusiast, and I expect great success in his development as a professional pilot," said Buettner.
