On January 8, 2019, Mrs. Blaine, Workplace Counselor attended a Red Tails Potluck dinner at Stewart Airport where Miguel Connell is currently interning during the 2018-2019 School Year. Red Tails is a youth flying program for teenagers.
Mrs. Blaine believes in meeting the mentors as well as seeing them in action. The true success of the internship program at Chester Academy is the communication between the mentee (intern) and the mentor. She is very proud of Miguel's accomplishments.
