A formal sign in Member Class ‘17, Nick Joss has been part of Washington State’s Air Force ROTC program since his freshman year on campus.
Joss was recently selected out of 120 candidates to receive a 3,000 dollar scholarship for instructional flying time and study materials at Pullman/Moscow Regional Airport.
“The scholarship means a lot to me,” Joss said. “18 hours of flying time will significantly boost my Pilot Candidate Selection Method score and increase my chances of becoming a pilot in the World’s Greatest Air Force.”
The intention of the program is to teach participants the proper skills and knowledge to fly a Cessna 172 aircraft solo.
The last Air Force ROTC Cadet to come out of Washington Alpha was Niko Tsakeredes, a STEM major who graduated with a perfect 4.0 GPA. Niko is currently in graduate school at Cornell University.
