• Washington County schools offer aviation pathway

     The Washington County School Board approved a program last week that will allow high school students to get their foot in the door of one of the fastest growing industries in the state.

    Working in collaboration with the Air and Space Academy and the Lebanon-Springfield Airport Board, the school district was able to implement a four-year program that will expose students to aviation and aerospace science. It will offer a pathway to a vast array of career fields that include engineering, mechanics and manufacturing.
