|(Email to Kelly Hamlin -- MS Principal)|
I am Kathy Prickett's brother and we set up the first-ever skype with her 6th grade classroom. An Air Operations Center (AOC) has never done this before. We had a great time with Kathy's class and hope to make this a regular event with lots of different organizations. We didn't know if you might like to inform any of the local media about this. The local television stations might even have an interest and we would be happy to help in any way we can. Here is a link to the article and it has been released to "lots" of media organizations.
Please let me know if you need any additional information and thanks for sharing your class!

share our mission," said Colonel Garner. "We can literally
show off our AOC to someone half way around the world, now that's a
tool that should be utilized."
