WASHINGTON, D.C. – The National Association of State Aviation Officials (NASAO) has created the “Henry M. Ogrodzinski Scholarship.” The program will be run through NASAO’s Center for Aviation Research and Education and will award scholarships to dependents and spouses of NASAO members who are in good standing.
In its first year, the program may award up to three $1,000 non-renewable scholarships that may be used for tuition, fees, books and/or supplies. Additional information and applications are available online at www.nasao.org.
Henry Ogrodzinski spent more than 17 years leading NASAO as its President and CEO and devoted his lifetime to the general aviation industry. He served general aviation through Delco Electronics, the Experimental Aircraft Association, the General Aviation Manufacturers Association, Gulfstream Aerospace, and the United States Air & Trade Show in Dayton, Ohio. Ogrodzinski, 65, passed away January 22, 2014 after a long battle with cancer.
