Celebrating NAA’s September 2019 Graduates!

Graduations are the culmination of the hands-on, technical training that students undergo while at National Aviation Academy (NAA). To celebrate the distinct achievements of our students, NAA—Tampa Bay hosted a graduation ceremony for Classes 6/18 AMT and 11/17 AMP on September 25, 2019, at the Central Park Performing Arts Center in Largo, FL. Family and friends gathered to celebrate with those who completed NAA’s Aviation Maintenance Technology (AMT) and Aviation Maintenance Professional (AMP) programs.

Awards + Achievements

During the ceremony, students who exhibited outstanding achievements were honored with specialized awards. Joshua Chavers was the September 2019 valedictorian. Samuel Bischman was named Top Technician-AMT. Julio Toro Lugo earned Top Technician-AMP. Awards were also presented for AMP Perfect Attendance, AMP Outstanding Attendance, AMT Perfect Attendance, and AMT Outstanding Attendance. The Top Airframe Team award went to Team 6: Samuel Bischman, Austin Fox, John Girard, Gustavo Grana Rivera, and Jorge Marshall. The Top Powerplant Team award was awarded to Team 3: Joshua Acierno, Aleksandr Aleksandrov, Dustin Baldwin, and Tamaal Johnson.

Graduation is only the beginning. We can’t wait to see how these newly-minted aviation maintenance technicians will use their technical training in the aviation industry, their careers, and beyond!
