The Youth Aeronautics Educational Foundation (YAEF) wants to thank the Cottrell Family for the Officer Walter L. Cottrell, Jr. Scholarship that was awarded to those highly qualified youth with preference given to those with a strong interest in aviation. This was the 1st scholarship honoring the memorial of Officer Walter Cottrell who was tragically killed in 1974 due to insufficient helicopter maintenance. The first recipients of this scholarship were Josiah Hill, Travis Olwin, Nafisah Adams and Thomas Hood with Mr. Alan Cottrell on the far right. The scholarships were presented by Samuel Billings, YAEF Executive Director at the DaVinci Youth Golf Tournament at Kiskiack Golf Club on August 22, 2015.
