MGM Cadet, Tyler Campbell recently had the opportunity to meet with Congressional and City leaders. Tyler met with Congressman Bradley Byrne and Mobile Mayor Sandy Stimpson in a recent meeting of national and city leaders. What a great opportunity for to learn, first-hand, about the issues being discussed by governmental leaders making decisions for our area.
JROTC Rattler Cadets got the opportunity go board a flight with the US Coast Guard and fly over Mobile Bay. The Coast Guard's Aviation Training Center has been supporting the JROTC Program at LeFlore High School for many years now with volunteers serving as guest instructors (with an emphasis on the ACT and ASVAB Tests). The Rattlers had a great time and learned first-hand about the opportunities to serve in our nation's premiere search and rescue organization. Captain Tom Maine and his team at ATC Mobile deserve our thanks and praise for the hundreds of man-hours of support dedicated to our school system!
John L. LeFlore Magnet High School implemented the IT Microsoft Academy this semester. Three senior students became Microsoft Office Specialist (Word) certified, under the guidance of Ms. Bridget Eubanks. The school hopes this is the start of many to come.

Davidson High School Software Programming Students competed in the Congressional APP Challenge by creating an Android APP that allows the user to compute factors related to changing tire sizes on a vehicle. The factors included tire size changes and how different sizes can affect speed and fuel consumption.
The APP was built by 4 students who took Software Programming last Spring and then returned to Software II this Spring. Results of the competition won't be announced until June 18. We will keep you posted!
