The district is proud to announce that Junior-Senior High School senior Isabella DaCosta was presented with the Mark Ferguson Scholarship Award at Barry Tech's Certificate Ceremony. She was selected for her dedication, passion, academics and essay which explained her passion for aviation and flying.
The scholarship honors Mark Ferguson, a Barry Tech Aviation Program graduate who quickly became a successful pilot before he passed away at a very young age. The scholarship and award come from his parents and a committee selected Isabella as the winner.
Isabella earned a 97 on her FAA exam and has been accepted to the extremely selective Professional Pilot program at Farmingdale State College.
