Centennial Elementary 5th Grade students in Mrs. Terri Schilling’s Class and Ms. Vanessa Vierkoetter’s Class “took off” with the Southwest Airlines Adopt-A-Pilot program.
With the help from the classes’ pilot, Capt. Brock Booher, students learned about math, geography and science tied with real-life scenarios and discussions about future career opportunities.
Capt. Booher encouraged a classroom filled with respect, which is the one requirement the students have to fulfill to take part in the lessons.
Through the Adopt-A-Pilot, or “F.L.I.G.H.T.” program (Fearlessness, Leadership, Imagination, Gratitude, Honesty, and Tenacity) students developed an attitude to set and achieve high goals both inside and outside the classroom.
