Morgan McDaniel, a graduate of Effingham County High School, was awarded the Pres Henne Youth Apprenticeship Scholar for Engineers by Gulfstream Aerospace.

The special scholarship, made available this year to help a student pursue an engineering degree, commemorates the career of Pres Henne, retired senior vice president of programs, engineering and test at Gulfstream.

McDaniel will study mechanical engineering at Georgia Southern University this fall.

Each year, children of Gulfstream employees who plan to attend an accredited educational institution or technical school can compete for one of four annual scholarships: the Gulfstream Goldie Glenn Scholarship, the Susan and Fred Breidenbach Scholarship, the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) Scholarship and the Gulfstream/Rolls-Royce 50th Anniversary Scholarship.

“These talented sons and daughters of Gulfstream employees represent our future leaders,” said Carolyn Grantham, director of employee relations at Gulfstream. “With the rising cost of college education, Gulfstream is pleased to offer these scholarships to help them pursue their academic and professional careers.”

The Gulfstream Goldie Glenn Scholarship, worth $2,000 a year and renewable for up to four years, is named for Albert H. “Goldie” Glenn, a former Gulfstream vice chairman who began his career as an aviation mechanic and spent 52 years in the industry.

The Susan and Fred Breidenbach Scholarship can be used at any accredited institution of higher learning – with each scholarship worth up to $5,000 per academic year. The scholarship may total up to $20,000 for up to four years or until program or degree completion, whichever comes first. These scholarships are available through Fred Breidenbach, who served as Gulfstream president from 1993 to 1997.

The SCAD Scholarship pays for full tuition and is renewable each year based on academic requirements. While the other scholarships are awarded every year, this scholarship can be used by only one student at a time.

The Gulfstream/Rolls-Royce 50th Anniversary Scholarship program was established by Rolls-Royce North America Inc., for sons and daughters of Gulfstream employees. The annual competition is conducted through the National Merit Scholarship Program by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation, an independent, not-for-profit organization. Each Gulfstream/Rolls-Royce 50th Anniversary Scholarship stipend is $1,500 per year for up to four years of undergraduate study or until baccalaureate degree requirements are completed, whichever occurs first.
