Several board members provided updates on projects in the works for YPC members.

McGavock High School Academies – McGavock High School has a curriculum/pathway for students interested in Transportation/Auto/Diesel. Recruiting the next generation of talent is important to our mission. We’re in research gathering mode, looking for schools with vocational applications in curriculum. Patrick and Edward did a tour, got an idea of what they had going on, what a partnership could look like. YPC ideally is hoping to do one event per quarter, still looking for ideas how what that would look like. Potentially having kids visiting our locations, having YPC members visit their schools. PENCIL is the accountability organization to fulfill partnership, protects responsibilities for all parties. We had a good discussion with McGavock and PENCIL representatives.
SAVE THE DATE: May 17, Spring Wing Fling at McGavock. There is potential for us to participate, we will discuss more going forward.
SAVE THE DATE: August 10, 2019, Give Back Day. YPC members will be serving breakfast at Nashville Rescue Mission in the Gulch.
