We are very excited to announce that Sarah Crosby is the 2023 NJ99s Chapter Scholarship recipient! Sarah has been a very active member of our Chapter, not only has she volunteered to be our webmaster but most recently went above and beyond helping with our yearly Flyout Challenge fundraiser. Sarah is a career middle school teacher but has taken on extra jobs to help pay for her flight training. She is a waitress, works at Solberg on the ramp and helps with Fight School coordination. Sarah has been able to combine her love of flying with her love for teaching. She implemented aviation as part of the curriculum at her school and has started an aviation club. Sarah plans on finishing her private pilot license by the end of December and will use the Scholarship to continue training for her instrument rating. Her ultimate goal is to become a Certified Flight Instructor - combining her love of teaching with her passion for flying!!
