RCSS Partners with the Augusta Regional Airport for Summer Shadow Program

The Richmond County School System (RCSS) has partnered with the Augusta Regional Airport to offer high school students the opportunity to shadow multiple aviation departments.

This Career, Technical, and Agricultural Education (CTAE) program is designed to provide students that are interested in the aviation industry the opportunity to shadow professionals within each field; to gain knowledge and experience through the use of observation and hands-on opportunities. Two students, Donquarius Rhodes from the Academy of Richmond County and JaQuan Hall (pictured) from Lucy C. Laney High School, have spent four weeks of their summer shadowing professionals in aviation fields such as, Airfield Maintenance, Aircraft Maintenance, Avionics, Line Service, Airport Operations, and Airport Engineering.
