Local Students Among Gulfstream Scholarship Recipients

Seven Coastal Empire students are getting a good head start on their futures. They're among ten students who were awarded college scholarships from Gulfstream.

Every year, the company chooses ten children of Gulfstream employees who excel academically, show leadership through extracurricular activities and volunteer in their communities.

"I'm extremely excited," said scholarship recipient Sarah Felipe. "It's going to help me very much towards going to Georgia Tech and pursuing my goal of becoming a biomedical engineer."

"It's about the future," said Gulfstream president Bryan Moss. "We're in good shape now. The company's really doing well, but the future really rests in the hands of the people we honor here today."

The scholarship for each student is $2,000 a year for up to four years.
