Flight for Excellence-A-Net Scholars

Motivating students to do their best is always a challenge. But recently the administrative team and board members can up with a unique way to do just that!

What if students were offered the opportunity to fly over the city, with landmarks like FCWCS, the Superdome, the Crescent City Bridges, and the Mississippi River, a few 1000 feet below them?

That offer went out to 5th, 6th, and 7th graders during the last Achievement-Network (A-Net) Test of this academic year. Board of Directors member Al Edwards (of Ely Edwards Enterprises) offered this unique tour to 30 scholars in his Piper aircraft.

What a fantastic way to see the city–soaring academically and literally above the Crescent City during their Flight for Excellence!
