Fine Arts Academy fifth and sixth graders in the Career and Technical Education (CTE) class pose with Southwest Airlines pilot Scott Morrison.
FAA participates in Southwest Airlines' Adopt-A-Pilot program, in which pilots volunteer their time by visiting classrooms and mentoring students. Pilots visit classrooms for an hour each week for four weeks.
The students track their adopted pilot’s journey during the time they are on the road. The program teaches students about topics like how an airplane flies and makes lessons in science, geography, and math come alive.
