West Windsor, N.J. – The “Sky’s the Limit” TTN Scholarship Fund held its annual golf tournament in October at Mercer County’s Mountain View Golf Course. The benefit outing is held for the sole benefit of Mercer County Community College (MCCC) Aviation Flight Technology students. This year the event yielded a record total of $28,000 in proceeds that created $5,000 scholarships to cover flight fees for five students.
According to one of the event’s organizers, Greg Johns, the president/CEO of Infinity Flight Group, which partners with MCCC at Mercer-Trenton Airport, the outing is a win-win for the region’s community of pilots. “The local aviation business has so many alumni from MCCC’s flight program who are now in corporate aviation or another aspects of the business,” Johns said. He estimates that one-quarter of the golfers are MCCC alumni who have come full circle to support the program.
“We’re a small community and everyone knows each other. Word spreads quickly about the event and we have a great day together,” Johns said, adding that he finds it personally rewarding to help organize the outing, knowing that the funds raised are truly making a difference in students' lives.
