LOWNDES CO., Miss. – (WCBI) They are ladies who have traded pots and pans, for planes. Now, they are encouraging other women in North Mississippi to aim high.
Aurora Flight Sciences and Dreams of Wings are co-hosting an educational event this weekend to inspire and encourage females to pursue their dreams in the world of flight.
There will be several guest speakers to share their experiences in aviation. Organizers say it’s a fun way to inform everyone about their career options.
“We have a lot of really cool activities going on tomorrow and they will be able to see airplanes up close. They will be able to talk to women and men of aviation and aerospace. Hopefully, they can maybe find a mentor or find somebody they can connect with and find a job that speaks to them. Science and math related stuff, there’s a lot of different opportunities,” says Dreams of Wings Coordinator Elizabeth Poeppelman.
The free event will be held Saturday from 9 a.m until noon at Aurora Flight Services in Lowndes County.
