NEWARK — Several members of the freshman class at Mother Seton Regional High School in Clark recently took part in a two-day program at Newark Liberty International Airport sponsored by Hans Media and the Women’s Transportation Seminar.
The seminar offered an inside look into careers in aviation. Students toured a control tower, witnessed firsthand the complexity of the cockpit, and listened to unique stories of multiple prominent women working in transportation. On the second day of the seminar, the students broke into groups and designed “dream terminals” including shops, utilities and gates. The girls concluded that each job is intertwined with the next; architects work with civil engineers, who together consult with budget managers and so on.
Freshmen Catherine Bialkowski, Clifton, Marialaina Nissenbaum, Fords, Megan Piesla, Bloomfield, Mia Powell, Newark and Arienne Saldanha,Iselin, spent an overwhelming two days packed with information at every turn. Each girl left with new career options for future reference.
