Youth Commission students shadow government leaders on Groundhog Day

Our student leaders are already planning for their futures and what better way to get real-world experience than by shadowing our government leaders! On Groundhog Day this year (Feb. 2) our young men and women were paired up with department heads to learn the ins and outs of government, and how we operate.

Student leaders learn about airport’s economic impact

For most people, the first thing that comes to mind when they think of an airport…is flying! But the operations at the Middle Georgia Regional Airport (MCN) go much further than that. In April, students in Macon-Bibb’s GCAPS (Georgia Civic Awareness Program for Students) leadership cohort visited the Airport to learn about its history and economic impact on the entire region.

Companies such as Boeing, Bombardier, Haeco, and Yulista have all set up shop at MCN to provide maintenance, repair, and overhaul for everything from small private planes to commercial liners to military aircraft. It’s those services that keep the airport running, and supporting our local economy.
