Women in Aviationaviation

On Tuesday, March 21st, three 8th grade students had the opportunity to participate in the annual Women in Aviation Career Day at Joint Base Charleston.  The event, which is designed for middle and high school females, brings education, awareness, and focus to students on Air Force opportunities in aviation. This field trip was organized by Ms. Lotts, JZMS guidance counselor, and chaperoned by Mr. Crankfield, parent advocate. Here's what the Zucker students had to say about the field trip: "Today was my best field trip ever."  "I was really inspired."  "I hope I will be able to come back!" Pictured above are Yasmeen El-Amin, Leslie Coronado Hernandez, Alyssa Kapinos, and Mr. Crankfield.  For more photos, see the photo gallery at left.

Stingrays Visitstingrays

Two players from the South Carolina Stingrays Hockey Team (goalie Steven Summeryhays and defenseman Joey Leach) visited Zucker on March 8th. They were accompanied by Mackenzie Farmery, Stingrays Community Relations Manager.  The players visited several classrooms and spoke with students about their experiences on and off the skating rink.  Students had the opportunity to ask questions, have their picture taken with the players and get both players' autographs.  The visit by the players was part of the South Carolina Stingrays' community outreach efforts. The Stingrays organization sponsors a Hat Trick for Reading program which gives students in grades K-8 an opportunity to earn a free ticket to a Stingrays game by reading.  For more photos, see the photo gallery at left.
