Taking their first steps toward a lucrative career in aviation, 16 A.B. Miller High School students received certificates of completion after finishing a 10-week training course designed to inspire careers as commercial airline pilots. Shades of Blue, a free course held on Saturdays at Ontario International Airport, provides students with access to pilots, engineers, mechanics, air traffic controllers and other aerospace professionals, who guide them through the basics of aviation and pilot training. A completion ceremony was held Dec. 18 at the airport. The course is the latest addition to A.B. Miller’s aviation career technical education pathway.
Fontana Unified Shakespeare Production Recognized for Excellence by California Educational Theatre Association
The Henry J. Kaiser High School Theatre Department’s staging of William Shakespeare’s "Coriolanus" drew rave reviews from California Educational Theatre Association (CETA) judges, earning third place in CETA’s 2021-22 High School Theater Festival. During the fall 2021 semester, CETA judges attended high school theatrical performances throughout southern California, adjudicating each production. Kaiser High School’s November staging of "Coriolanus" received a score of 100.39. The festival, which was to be held Jan. 14 to 16 at Los Osos High School in Rancho Cucamonga, was canceled due to the recent COVID-19 surge.
