Located near LaGuardia Airport, Vaughn College of Aeronautics and Technology, established in 1932 as an aviation-mechanics training school, has become a nationally recognized technology college with master’s, bachelor’s and associate degree programs in many aspects of aviation, engineering, management and technology.
As you know, IAWA has been offering a scholarship every year to a Vaughn student and has been very impressed with the caliber and passion of our recipients.
About 80% of the 1,800 Vaughn students are from the inner city with minority backgrounds and low income families.
With Dr. Sharon DeVivo’s leadership, Vaughn’s students are very successful in finding great positions in the industry with a 92% placement rate within a year of graduation.
At a time where the industry is in dire need of pilots, engineers, airport managers, Vaughn plays a critical role and we invite you to learn more about the school and visit it at your convenience.
We would encourage you to join or sponsor the annual Vaughn Gala dinner this coming November 10, on the school spacious repair hangar, which will give you a taste of the school and allow to meet many industry professionals.
Please see the invitation below to the annual Vaughn Gala on November 10, 2016, honoring Marion Blakey, President and CEO, Rolls Royce.
You will be inspired by the work this unique educational institution does to prepare our future workforce, and to meet one of our industry’s most impressive leaders.
We hope you can attend or support Vaughn’s Gala dinner and can provide you further information if needed.
