GRAND MARAIS, MINN. – Benjamin Seaton has been chosen to receive the new Arrowhead Eagles Scholarship, the first scholarship offered by the Arrowhead Eagles Aviation Organization.
Seaton is a long-time resident of Cook County and has been active in the Cook County Search and Rescue program. He was an inaugural member of the advanced Search and Rescue Strike Team. Seaton was formerly a member of the Grand Marais Fire Department and is currently a member of the Gunflint Trail Fire Department.
Seaton’s interest in aviation began in the eighth grade and continued through high school with much of his time spent outdoors flying model airplanes he built. He plans to use the scholarship to support his flight training as a steppingstone towards becoming a pilot in the U.S. Air Force.
“We’re very pleased to assist Ben in this manner and know he will be successful in reaching his goals in aviation,” said Mike Raymond, Arrowhead Eagles President.
Promoting general aviation and the Cook County-Grand Marais Airport is the major focus of the Arrowhead Eagles Aviation Organization, an all-volunteer organization which generates aviation events, educates the public of the benefits of the airport, supports airport enhancements, provides youth-oriented activities, encourages the community to use the airport, and promotes a friendly atmosphere at the airport. The Arrowhead Eagles Aviation Organization is an IRC 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit organization.
