LifeNet of New York Visits Western Wayne Students

On May 20, 2022 students at the Western Wayne High School and Middle School complex were visited by the LifeNet of New York Helicopter crew. Students had the opportunity to watch the helicopter land on campus and then were greeted by the crew members. Two life flight nurses and the helicopter pilot spent time with the kids describing the educational pathway that led them to a career in life flight. Students then had the opportunity to tour the helicopter, learn about the care that can be administered in flight, the mechanics of the helicopter and the logistics of life flight. This invaluable experience allowed students to see potential careers in medicine and aviation. Students used their scientific background knowledge to ask great questions and learn more about this life saving career. Students then enjoyed lunch sponsored by the WW Science Club and watched the helicopter take off. The experience was organized and presented by the Western Wayne Education Foundation which is supported financially by local business EITC donations.
