National Aviation History Month is dedicated to celebrating the country’s greatest contributions and achievements in aviation. To commemorate Aviation History Month, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey featured a virtual exhibit of Vaughn highlighting its history, student success stories and media coverage on the Port Authority scholarship recipients.
The 2020 LaGuardia Redevelopment Opportunity Scholarship was awarded to five students from Queens. The recipients are Kristian Nieves ’24Alvin King ’24 and Suraiya Nawaz ’24 from East Elmhurst, Anton DeGuzman ’24, from Corona and Chasisty Melo ’24 from Astoria.
The scholarship is part of the agency’s ongoing commitment to provide opportunities for members of the local Queens communities to share in the economic benefits of LaGuardia Airport’s redevelopment program.
