Arrowhead Eagles Aviation Organization awards 2023 aviation scholarship grants to two local aspiring pilots

Pictured (above) with two local aircraft in front of the terminal building at CKC-Grand Marais/Cook County Airport, members of the Arrowhead Ea­gles present the 2023 Aviation Scholarship certificate to Vaughn Swindle­hurst. Vaughn received a $2,500 award that he’ll apply towards his goal of earning a private pilot certificate, in his quest to become a commercial pilot. Pictured with Vaughn are members of the Eagles Board of Directors: (L-R) Rodney Roy, Mike Raymond, Vaughn and Tim Norman.

A second Scholarship award was presented to Jordan Ekroot as a “continuation grant” to help Jordan get his transitional fixed-wing rat­ing. Jordan is a licensed helicopter pilot and is working towards his commercial fixed-wing certificate. Pictured (right) with Jordan are Ea­gles Board members (L-R) Mike Raymond, Jordan, Rodney Roy and John Barton.

The Arrowhead Eagles is a local non-profit 501(c)(3) organization with a mission to support Cook County Minnesota’s airport and avia­tion tradition through promoting aviation events, airport enhancements, youth-oriented activities and opportunities, and to encourage commu­nity use and a friendly atmosphere at the Cook County/Grand Marais airport. This is the third year the organization has offered scholarships to local residents. Funds are raised through donations, endowments and the annual fly-in/drive-in pancake breakfast.
