Honored member award

In 1995, the first ACONE Honored Member Scholarship was awarded by the club.  Each year, this scholarship has been named to honor a member particularly active in the club, who has made a significant contribution to aviation and to the Aero Club of New England, and who has not otherwise been honored by the club.  This is a way for the club to say “Thank You” to these particular members.
