Austintown Fitch Air Force JROTC junior Xojier Lewis was one of only four students from the state of Ohio to be selected to attend an exclusive flight program this summer. Over 800 applicants applied for the program, and Lewis was one of the 171 who was accepted.

Lewis will join other cadets from around the world and participate in an 8-week summer program where he will attend a flight academy, and will graduate with his private pilot's certification upon successful completion.

Lewis was awarded a scholarship that will pay for his round-trip airfare, room and board, course tuition, as well as the flight hours required to potentially earn a Private Pilot Certification. 

24 partnering universities nationwide participate in the program, and Lewis will soon learn where he will be attending.
