With each new school year, CTE Department Chair and FRC Team 4243 Coach Mrs. Kimberly Pickett starts a new season of designing, building and competing in the FIRST Robotics competitions.
And to have a successful FIRST Robotics Team, Mrs. Pickett must recruit a new group of students to join her seasoned veterans on the team.
And the need for new recruits also applies to the volunteers that will be assisting Team 4243 this season.
Thankfully, Boeing SC stepped up again this year to provide the needed volunteer support for Mrs. Pickett’s students.
Boeing recently hosted the annual Parent Reception for families of students interested in joining the robotics team. Mr. Perry Morrissette, Sr. Manager, Airplane Level Engineering Integration from Boeing South Carolina was the featured speaker for the gathering of over 85 students, parents, volunteers and teachers in attendance.
After the event, the students gathered near the statue in front of the Boeing facility to take a group photo.
Thanks to all that made this event possible, especially the host, Boeing South Carolina, and best of luck to Team 4243 this season!
