Captain Earle Worley Scholarship Fund, 2022

Tim McSwain and his committee are pleased to announce 17 new candidates from all over the Commonwealth have applied for the Captain Earle Worley Scholarship. The Captain Earle Worley Scholarship Fund was established in 2017 to honor the memory of Captain Worley, a career pilot with United Airlines for 35 years, retiring in 1988. His love for aviation started when he entered the Navy as a naval air cadet. He then became a flight instructor and a member of the Civil Air Patrol. He founded the Eagles Chapter of the Virginia Aeronautical Historical Society in Williamsburg. The scholarship is intended to support postsecondary educational scholarships for qualifying graduates of public or private high schools in Virginia, attending an accredited two- or four-year community college, college or university, or vocational school in the United States who plan to study aeronautics, aerospace, aviation or related engineering. Students apply before the first week of March and the winners are announced in June.
