Captain Bruce & Laurie Gibbs Memorial Scholarship

Bruce Gibbs enjoyed a 39-year flying career with United Airlines. The Mt. SAC Aviation Program started him down a pathway that truly changed his life. Bruce wanted to honor and thank original instructors Harold (Pappy) Biell, Don Sjoberg, Russ Hanson, and Bob Elliot by helping to make opportunities available to committed commercial aviation students. Bruce traveled the world, met his flight attendant wife Laurie and enjoyed a wonderful lifestyle all because of his commercial aviation career. At the end of his life, Bruce felt that contributing to a student’s future aviation career would be a lasting legacy.
