Representatives from TAM visited Longfellow Elementary School in Compton on Nov. 18 as part of the school’s Career Day. James Knox and MacArthur Dandridge visited the school and spoke to students from various grades about the opportunities available in learning about aviation.
Knox and Dandridge, both former Longfellow students themselves, were able to show students what they can achieve if they apply themselves in school and go after their dreams. As part of their presentations, they also mentioned that students can begin to learn about aviation by simply visiting TAM and taking in all it has to offer.
Other speakers were on hand for this Career Day, such as musicians, graphic designers and businessmen and women, but students seem the most intrigued with TAM’s young pilots, inquiring about learning to fly and being a part of the TAM experience.
