The Justin Swaggerty Aviation Foundation (JSAF) will host a special event to award the first aviation scholarships to three well deserving recipients from the Naples area. The event will be held at Bayfront Inn at 1221 Fifth Ave S in Naples on Sunday, June 5th from 5:00pm-8pm.

The scholarship recipients that will be celebrated at the event include Garrett Sutton, Steven Trombley and Anderson Miller.

Garrett Sutton is 19 years old and is attending school at Paragon Flight Group in Ft Myers. Steven Trombley is 20 years old and it attending Palm Beach Flight Training. Anderson Miller is the only female attending CFTAR on Marco Island. She is one of only 4% of the females in the category of instrument licensing that she has attained.

Laura Swaggerty established the Justin Swaggerty Aviation Fund in honor of her son Justin. JSAF raises funds to provide scholarships for young adults who need financial assistance while pursuing their dream of becoming private or commercial pilots.

“We are excited to present Garrett, Steven and Anderson with the first of many scholarships to be given in Justin’s honor. Each of these future pilots have worked so hard to get to the levels they are presently at today. It’s our hope that the JSAF scholarships will help each of them to go on to be successful in an industry that has a great shortage of pilots,” said Laura Swaggerty.

She continued, “We are truly grateful to the community of friends and newcomers that support our foundation. Together we can continue to help students at a time when fuel costs are affecting the cost of their training.”

The Justin Swaggerty Legacy Event will include a cocktail hour, food stations, raffles, and scholarship awards presentations.
