Scottsbluff JROTC cadet receives piloting program scholarship | Education

However, his coach at JROTC, Lt. Col. Jeff Johnson, pushed him to apply for the scholarship anyway.

“He’s just an outstanding student. You know what I mean? He’s a student athlete, very good at athletics, and he’s also a captain in our program, so he’s as young as him, and he’s a good captain and an outstanding student,” Johnson said. “…was recently a flight captain. For us. Each class has a flight commander, if you will, we call him a flight commander, so he took control of the last semester and did a great job. (He) is helping some students who struggle a bit here academically, and just with all things in school, (he) has been a great help and a great leader.”

According to a press release, “The ROTC Junior Air Force Academy Scholarship Program is an Air Force-wide initiative in collaboration with the commercial aviation industry to address the shortage of national civilian and military pilots.” The program will allow selected students to obtain a private pilot certificate at no cost and without a military obligation to the Air Force or other branches of service.

Mickey said he is looking forward to completing the program this summer, as he will become a certified private pilot at age 17. He said it will open many doors for him in the future.
