The students going on the trip won scholarships from Boeing and United by showing leadership in their schools and community, as well as having a pristine academic record, and then, spent the past 5 months learning from United and Boeing employees.

Congratulations to all the students who are participating in this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!
