The Tulsa Aerospace Council, along with U.S. Representative Kevin Hern, recently made a visit to East Central High School as part of its ongoing efforts to inspire and encourage the next generation of aerospace professionals. During the visit, Mr. Hern and representatives from the council shared their personal experiences and stories about working in the industry, highlighting the exciting opportunities and challenges that come with a career in aerospace.
The event was attended by students from the high school's aerospace program, led by teacher Dwight Long. The visit was well received by the students, who were eager to learn more about the industry and the various pathways available to them. It was an excellent opportunity for the Tulsa Aerospace Council to engage with and inspire the future workforce of the aerospace industry, and for the students to gain a deeper understanding and appreciation for the field. Fun fact, one of Infinite Composites' very own, Efren Luevano, was a graduate of the high school.
Additional attendees included Aerospace Council chair, Bailey J Siegfried of NORDAM, Infinite Composites' own COO, Michael Tate, East Central Principal Gina Wilson, Superintendent Deborah Gist, and along with others in the aerospace community.
