We would like to thank motivational speaker Vernice Armour for taking time out of her busy schedule to speak to our class on the importance of making good decisions. Vernice is the first African American female combat pilot in the Marine Corps. She has been featured on many TV shows including the Oprah Winfrey show. Vernice left the class with sound advice. “Decisions equal Destiny” Thanks Vernice for sharing your personal story with us.

Former student Journey Washinghigh was accepted as an intern at the Florida Institute for Human and Machine Congnition for the school year 2018-2019.  She will be working with research scientist Dr. Dawn Kemagis on projects in Human Health, Resilience and Performance.  The Chappie James Flight Academy is fortunate to have highly motivated young people.  Most come to the academy with high ambition and a solid foundation sometimes.  Journey is one of those students.  She will join our ranks as mentor for the Chappie James Flight Academy for the year 2019.  Congratulations Journey.
