BASF awards two scholarships

BASF and the National Agricultural Aviation Association (NAAA) awarded scholarships to budding pilots with plans to study aerial application.

Justin Mook, of Wiggins, Colo., and Kippy Foltyn, of Lansford, N.D., were awarded NAAA/BASF Agricultural Aviation Scholarships of $5,000 and $2,500, respectively, during the 46th annual NAAA convention and exposition in Savannah, Ga.

“America needs more qualified aerial applicators,” said Gary Fellows, BASF plant health technical services manager. “With these scholarships, we’re able to provide people like Justin and Kippy with the opportunity to receive the education they need to enter the field.”
