10 recipients were placed on the wall for being recipients of Fed Ex Purple Runway Aviation scholarships. Each recipient received a 10 thousand dollar scholarship to continue their studies.

"We're really excited that fed ex could be here today. They've offered us a great opportunity for all our students here. They gave us over five hundred thousand dollars over five years to produce scholarships for our students," Saia said.
Next year, 20 scholarships will be up for grabs for students to apply for.
