Two Henderson State University aviation students were each awarded a $2,000 scholarship from the Arkansas Aviation Historical Society.

Robert Nix of Crossett and Jared Coleman of Hot Springs were honored Nov. 5 in Little Rock following an Arkansas Aviation Hall of Fame induction ceremony. This was the first year the society has awarded scholarships.

The ceremony not only honored the Hall of Fame inductees, but also highlighted the need for the aviation community to support the efforts of young pilots realizing their dream.
