“We believe that Drew is an exemplary student,” stated Kelly LoCascio, Angel MedFlight CEO. “We were impressed by his commitment to his education.

His drive and determination to succeed in the classroom and in the air make him an ideal recipient for the Angel MedFlight Scholarship for Excellence in Aviation. We commend this young man for his achievement and we wish him all the best.”
