PILOTS HOST YOUTH IN GOVERNMENT STUDENTS
The Canaveral Pilots Association hosted the Florida YMCA Youth in Government group at Port Canaveral on Thursday, August 6, 2015. The High School students along with staff and volunteers began their day at Port Canaveral with a stop at the Exploration Tower where they heard presentations from the Port Authority’s Director of Cruise Operations Brian Blanchard, Brevard County Sheriff Deputy Evan Hightower, U.S. Coast Guard Marine Safety Detachment Supervisor LCDR Stephen West, and Canaveral Pilots Business Director Doug Mutter. Next the students were given a harbor tour of Port Canaveral aboard the “Blue Dolphin.” These students are on a week long trek across the State learning about various career fields, industries, and state governmental policy and regulatory issues. They asked great questions and showed a great desire to learn! Good Luck to these future leaders!
