Brandon Byrd, a Glide High School senior, was awarded the $5,000 Yasmin Treki Memorial Scholarship.

Byrd will be attending Central Oregon Community College to study aviation science and obtaining a commercial helicopter license. His goal is to become an aerial firefighter helicopter pilot.

Yasmin Treki was the 2005 Glide High School salutatorian and a junior at the University of Oregon when her life was cut short due to leukemia. This is the 12th year her family has awarded this scholarship in her memory.
