Mobile County School System Assistant Superintendent Dr. Lynda Carroll and the B.C. Rain Principal Marlon Firle toured ASMS last Friday. Rain is building a Science Academy that will enroll students next year. They are pictured above with Director of Student Services Dr. Monica Motley and student Ambassadors Nick Chaplow and Candice Clark.
German teacher Muriel Hoequist, in collaboration with the physics department and ASMS President Dr. Larry Turner, organized an extended plant visit at Thyssen Krupp for 18 students from ASMS. Hoequist also invited alumni and two college students from Auburn did come to join the ASMS group. The tour showed the physical and mechanical processes and plant requirements for steel productions first-hand and gave insight into entry points and career tracks for students with college degrees in any of the natural sciences, engineering, math, business and German. These careers are now available in Alabama, all over the US and globally.
