Three Richmond Hill High School graduates have received scholarships from Gulfstream Aerospace Corp.

Breanna Cota received a Susan and Fred Breidenbach Scholarship, worth up to $5,000 per academic year and may total up to $20,000. Cota plans to study mechanical engineering at Georgia Tech. Fred Breidenbach was Gulfstream president from 1993-97.

Emily Fischer and Sandpip Minhas were awarded the Gulfstream Goldie Glenn Scholarship. Both plan to attend the University of Georgia; Fischer plans to study biology with a focus on marine biology, while Minhas will be in the honors program at UGA to pursue a double major in biology and public policy.

The Gulfstream Goldie Glenn Scholarship, worth $2,000 a year and renewable for up to four years, is named for Albert H. “Goldie” Glenn, a former Gulfstream vice chairman who began his career as an aviation mechanic and spent 52 years in the industry.

Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. has awarded more than $250,000 in scholarships to 16 children of employees at the company’s sites in California, Georgia, Texas and Wisconsin. Students were recognized at an event at Gulfstream’s Savannah headquarters.

“Gulfstream is like a family, and that’s why I am especially honored to recognize the outstanding academic achievements of the talented sons and daughters of Gulfstream employees,” Gulfstream Administration and General Counsel Senior Vice President Ira Berman said. “Hopefully, these scholarships will help these young men and women to excel as they pursue their academic and professional careers.”
