General Robinson Visits Sequoyah

The Sequoyah Elementary 5th graders had a special treat last week with a visit from General Ben Robinson. During their 5th grade academy General Robinson spoke with them about his life story. He is a retired astronaut who grew up with a love of planes and went on to fly several kinds of planes for the Military and is now a Boeing Executive. He encouraged the students to hold tight to whatever they are passionate about, and through hard work and determination they can live out their passion like he does.

Additionally, he taught them about all of the different careers in aerospace, from a pilot to an airline ticket agent, and got them exited about the potential to make one of those their own career. General Robinson did an incredible job relating to these students and got them exited to work hard and dream big!

Thank you, General Robinson, for speaking with our students and making an impact in their futures!
