CFF’s Project SOaR™ Program Visits Dorman High School

Roebuck, S.C. (March 7, 2013) — Celebrate Freedom Foundation’s Project SOaR™ (School/Student Opportunities and Rewards) Program visited Dorman High School on March 7, 2013. 

Retired U.S. Army Lt. Col. Jim Filiatreault and Col. Jack Lovelady used a 1971-model AH1 Cobra Attack Helicopter on a trailer to talk to students, particularly those on track to study science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), about careers in aviation. 

“STEM subjects such as science, technology, engineering and math are required for anyone wishing to pursue a career in South Carolina’s aviation industry,” explained Col. Lovelady.  “Our mission is to connect students to the real world, and we use this $10 million helicopter to make this relevant for both students and teachers.

“There are so many jobs available if you apply yourself in the classroom,” he added.  “In fact, there are approximately 19,000 jobs at companies like Boeing and Lockheed Martin.”
