JetBlue pilot inspires young aviator

by Lilly Workneh | October 11, 2013

Scott first met with the inquisitive boy nearly 10 years ago, when 5-year-old Elijah Hedrington first became interested in becoming a pilot.
Now the two have reconnected and Hedrington is currently enrolled as a sophomore at New York’s Bronx Aerospace High School. Scott has also eagerly agreed to serve as his mentor.
“The first time I saw him he became my role model,” Hedrington said. “A black man, being a pilot, a job I wanted to do.”

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
