Women In Aviation Recognized in Essay Contest
Female Student Essay Contest Winner Awarded Tablet
In honor of Women in Aviation and Breast Cancer Awareness month, Aviation Institute of Maintenance, awarded Tarsha Cecil a pink tablet as winner of our national essay contest. Aviation Institute of Maintenance began its eBook program at all eleven of our Part 147 schools on October 31, 2016. When students enroll in Aviation Institute of Maintenance, instead of being issued many aviation maintenance books, they receive a tablet with 9 eBooks uploaded on their tablet. The new eBooks have received very favorable comments and feedback from the student body. This program streamlines the number of books students have to carry around with them and students like the fact they have one small tablet with all the reference material they need right at their fingertips.
The Aviation Institute of Maintenance national essay contest was open to all women students enrolled in the Aviation Maintenance Technician program. They were asked to write about why they chose the aviation maintenance field. Tasha Cecil’s essay stood out above the others citing her passion for aviation field and the struggles she overcame to obtain her dream of becoming an aircraft mechanic. She wrote, “I am grateful to be alive at this time in history. A time when women have the opportunity to do and be whatever they choose. Women can be found working in all areas of society from teachers to politicians, from builders to pilots. You name a field and there is a one hundred percent chance that you will find a woman not only working in the field, but doing a fantastic job and maintaining a solid family life.”
