Our first Ray Scholar - Taris Keiper
Our Chapter's current Ray Aviation scholarship recipient is Taris Keiper. Taris is a senior at Dublin High School and concurrently attends Las Positas Middle College. He has been involved with EAA since he was 10 years old, when he participated in an EAA Composites Construction class. He began his flight training as a Young Eagle, and has already completed online ground school and the written exam.
Taris plans to study aeronautical engineering in college in the pursuit of a career working in the design of electric VTOLs. He is also a member of our Cri Cri build project.
