HAGERSTOWN, Maryland, February 17, 2023— Applications are being accepted for The Paul Lawson Memorial Aviation Scholarship, a fund created with The Community Foundation of Washington County.
Created in memory of Lawson, who passed away in 2021, this fund will provide scholarships for Maryland or West Virginia residents between the ages of 15-25 pursuing aviation lessons.
