When asked how the scholarship helped him while attending SWTC Brown said, “Being awarded the SWTC Foundation Scholarship not only paid for the airframe licensing process, but it also helped with the other necessities while I attended the center.” As a graduate of the Aviation and Aerospace Technology course, having completed the General, Airframe, and Powerplant portions of the program, Brown is now employed with the A-Team on Altus AFB and just received his A&P License.
