They were introduced to the history of black Aviators and more specific, the Tuskegee Airmen. Upon learning this they were invited to the Palm Springs Air Museum to view and learn about the aircrafts from WWII. They were also honored with their youth aviator wings in a formal presentation by Chauncey E. Spencer,II.
Wings were presented to the students by: Jarvis Crawford, Community Center Manager of the Palm Springs Unity Center and Veronica Kummerfeldt, Director of the S.T.E.A.M. program at the National College Resources Foundation.
A special thank you to Fred Bell, Director of the Palm Springs Air Museum and his team for making this moment special for tomorrows students.
