A story in the Shelby County Reporter in Columbiana, Alabama, details a recent visit to the Shelby County Airport by several Birmingham Southern College student.
The students were brought to the airport by two professors — one teaches theater, while the other teaches courses in music. Both professors are private pilots. The story quotes Matthew Mielke, one of the teachers:
“Aviation is something very near and dear to our hearts. We were hoping they would see how aviation affects so many aspects of life and their own family members’ lives.”
