Serving as president and CEO of Orlando Sanford International Airport until 2020, Crews served the City of Sanford for 11 years prior to accepting a vice president position at the airport in 2001. A native of Sanford, she has served on numerous boards and committees in the community and at the College.

Eligible students must possess a GPA of 3.5 or higher, be enrolled in at least 6 credit hours and demonstrate how they plan to utilize their degree in an aviation-related career.
