The annual award, in honor of Dr. Harold S. Wood, founder and

university’s Beechjet. He currently interns in the training
center at Chautauqua Airlines, and was formerly the first ever

relations officer of the Purdue School of Aviation Technology
Student Council, he has organized fundraisers and blood drives, as
well as overseeing aviation education for schoolchildren in the
community. Borchowski has been on the Honor’s list every year
