A good friend and former commander of mine, Col Bill Moran, wrote this white paper about a chance encounter surrounding aerospace bringing benefits to both the local CAP squadron and a local school.  I thought it might be helpful to other AEOs and commanders in terms of how good external AE can help a broader awareness.

Wow! Good job!!!

Is he a certified teacher? Need to be? Or working under another that covers it?

These students must be eating this up. Can't help but to imagine how many may be inspired to go in these directions.  :clap:

This is really wonderful! I wish so many more schools and programs had interested adults (with the time and ability) volunteering their expertise and passion! A lot of times private schools and home school classes don't require teacher certification but just need the volunteers willing to share their knowledge and time. Volunteering my time to teach other peoples kids (particularly high school) has been one of the greatest blessings of my life.

Thank you for sharing!

It speaks to the synergy that a well-executed AE program (eps External AE) can have for a unit's well being and community awareness.

Couple this with a little PAO action and you've got a great newspaper article
