THE STORY:

Anthony had the ability to hear an airplane and name its type without even looking. He spent his childhood playing a flight simulation video game, visiting airports to watch planes take off and land, and spent money on plane tickets with no destination so he could simply enjoy the flight. Airplanes have always been his passion. It came as no surprise that when Anthony graduated from Divine Child, he'd be attending a top-notch aeronautical university. After visiting the campus, Anthony applied to Embry-Riddle, only Embry-Riddle, and was accepted. Although he knew how tough it would be, Anthony was one for commitment. He took out hundreds of thousands of dollars in student loans, he paid travel fees, book fees, flight fees, spent hours studying, spent hours flying, and spent hours looking toward his future. I was witnessing my son's dream come true. Our family couldn't have been happier; everything was falling into place. On May 13, 2012 Anthony graduated with honors and received a Bachelor's Degree in Aeronautical Science from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, FL. He earned a commercial pilot certificate with instrument and multi-engine ratings. Tragically, Anthony's life came to an end on June 14th, 2012, and his dream of becoming a pilot for a commercial airline ended with all of his other dreams. A memorial scholarship fund has been established in Anthony's name at Embry Riddle Aeronautical University's Daytona Beach Campus so that other students can make their dreams come true. Our goal is to raise money for this memorial scholarship fund so that Anthony's memory and dream lives on through another student with the same passion for aviation. http://givingto.erau.edu/dujardin/
