Women in Aviation (WAI), North Texas Chapter, 2023 American Airlines Cadet Academy Scholarship Winner

On January 14th, 2023, Shanna Lucas was named as the scholarship recipient of an American Airlines Cadet Academy Scholarship, awarded by the WAI North Texas chapter as one of many scholarships awarded to well deserving girls and women building their hours and certifications in aviation.

Lucas attributes the timing of her first aviation scholarship as surreal... Not only was her first scholarship awarded during Lucas's first week in flight school, but DURING Lucas's first takeoff and flight with her academy. Paralleled are two different, yet imperative assisted takeoffs that have created lift for Lucas to experience a new phase of flight she had before then never known. Working from the ground up, Lucas hopes to continue serving as a good neighbor, photography purveyor/practitioner, and flight student.
