Thank you all for your support, you will not be forgotten! BIG NEWS between your donations and the school's support, WE HAVE MADE OUR GOAL!!! Thank you all! We will keep you updated here and you may check our progress at facebook.com/ssccawam
Good morning all: we have shown that there is support out there for us to go and that this is important. We have approached the school one last time to cover the rest of the costs: hopefully our plea will not fall on deaf ears. Keep your fingers crossed!
Last but not least, Sarah: "I am two quarters short of graduating the AMT program. I chose this program because I think airplanes are amazing. I needed a career choice that can lead to a job so I can support my two kids and myself. And besides, how cool is it to be able to work on them everyday?! I can't wait to have my A&P license and to be able to work out in the field."
Next team member up for the aerospace maintenance competition: Jennifer. "I'm in my 4th quarter in the AMT program at South. In 2013 I left a corporate job in the software industry to enroll in the program in order to make a career based on my love of airplanes. I want to participate in the competition because it's a great motivator to me to improve my skills, a chance to get to know some of the other women in program better, a chance to learn from the experts and a chance to rub shoulders with some of the best in the industry at the competition. Personal fact: when I'm not studying or attending school, I write books."
Team member bio: Melissa: Melissa: I am in 112 class right now. i come from china. I am really interested in aviation program because it makes me feel really cool. It gives me a lot of confidence. I wanna get my a&p license after I graduate and get a fantastic job.
Another team member's story: CrystalRose. "I have my Powerplant license and am in my first class for Airframe. I was introduced to aviation by my father who has been a mechanic for over 20 years. I hope to be the best mechanic I can and go on to be an FAA or NTSB employee. I moved to Seattle recently from Portland, OR to get an aviation education. Before aviation my main focus was art."
Today our second competition meeting was a success. The team has fully committed to raising the money to attend. We took a look at the wheel and brake assembly of the Jetstar to get an idea of what will need to be done for the G-IV wheel and brake assembly removal challenge.
Thanks to you who have donated so far, the team left with a spring in their step and hope in their hearts.
P.S. The G-IV is like the G-6 but not hahahaha
Today I was informed that the school is unable to fund the travel and hotel costs. They have been great every other way, and so supportive. Now it is up to us and YOU to help us get there on time and rent a safe hotel!
