The Ashton Johnson Memorial Scholarship is intended to help veterans interested in pursuing careers in aviation. We're looking for veterans with honorary military performance along with passion, drive and tenacity either starting off or in the process of private pilot training. About Ashton Johnson Ashton Johnson was born in Ft. Worth, TX, on the noteworthy date of December 3, 1992. He graduated from Keller High School, attended Tarrant County College, then joined the US Army in 2016. He served his country for over three years as an air defense battle management system operator (MOS 14G). He received numerous medals and accolades and was honorably discharged in 2019. He completed an 8- month combat tour in Afghanistan, where he was instrumental in several specialized military operations. Before his enlistment, Ashton played paintball professionally with X-Factor of San Antonio, Texas. A rising star within the paintball industry, Ashton became well known for his agility, grit, and wit. Ashton was also an accomplished country dancer and shared a mutual passion for flying with his dad. On the dance floor, there were no strangers. His innate ability to teach even those with two left feet was uncanny. As for flying, one of his favorite spots was the family hangar. He often brought his friends there to share the family PT-17 Stearman biplane, which he loved to fly. Although he had soloed numerous times (his first solo was in June of 2020), Ashton didn't complete his venture before passing on October 4, 2021, at the young age of 28. Finally, and most importantly, Ashton was a beloved brother and son. Cherished by his older brother and younger sister, he never missed an opportunity to return his affection to them.
