Students at Montgomery’s new Park Crossing High School are working to sharpen their skills to get college and career ready.  It’s called Thunderbird Flight School.

Students took part Wednesday in six mini-sessions including improving study skills, social interactions, long range goal setting and setting high expectations.

“Sometimes you don’t get that motivation from certain people,” says 9th grade student Maya Henderson, “and you need other people to motivate you.”

Henderson adds, “It’s good to have someone to tell you to keep going – especially in high school – so you can achieve your goals.”

Representatives from Auburn Montgomery, The Council on Substance Abuse, PC Media, Trenholm State Technical College and the Boys and Girls Club of America facilitated the sessions.
