Fort Pierce Central’s Caputo earns aerospace camp scholarship

Fort Pierce Central High School freshman Andrew Caputo has been selected by the Stuart chapter of the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) for a $1500 scholarship to attend and study at the EAA’s Air Academy at Oshkosh, Wisconsin for one week in June. Andrew is presently in the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University/St. Lucie County Aerospace Academy located on the Fort Pierce Central High School campus. Andrew was nominated by the Institute’s director, Professor Kevin Adkins, and selected by the Stuart EAA chapter president Eric Ingraham based on “his past academic performance and general interest in aerospace, science, and engineering, along with his future potential for success within these areas.” Students at Air Academy are involved in classroom, field and laboratory experiences, along with team building exercises.
