Helke Elementary is working to provide its students with experiences and connections related to college and career awareness and exposure. Through a Career Connections program, Helke can partner with local companies to provide students with career exploration opportunities.
PSA Airlines is a wholly owned subsidiary of American Airlines whose headquarters is located at the Dayton International Airport here in Vandalia. PSA has a mission to not only reflect its responsibilities as an airline but also as a member of the communities where they live and work. Helke is proud to announce PSA has graciously accepted the opportunity to be a part of the Career Connections program.
On Tuesday, Feb. 6, PSA will be sending a pilot, flight attendant, mechanic, and a customer service program manager to Helke Elementary to speak the third-grade students. Each PSA employee will discuss their role in air travel and answer any questions the students may have.
The Helke Career Connections program is designed to get each grade level, kindergarten through third, the opportunity to three local businesses. Throughout a student’s four-year career at Helke, he or she will acquire 12 different learning experiences.
