UNITED AIRLINES 'ADOPTS' WASHINGTON'S EASTERN SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL

UNITED AIRLINES 'ADOPTS' WASHINGTON'S EASTERN SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL
 WASHINGTON, Oct. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- United Airlines has "adopted" Eastern Senior High School in Washington, and will supply the resources needed to acquaint Eastern's students with the wide range of career choices available today in the commercial airline industry.
 In a message to Eastern students, Stephen M. Wolf, chairman and chief executive officer of United Airlines, said: "It is you who will become our work force, our customers, our community and national leaders of tomorrow.
 "United Airlines, in partnership with your school staff, wants to assist in providing you with the tools you will need to become successful, productive and happy citizens in the future. That is the basis for our Adopt-A-School partnership," he added.
 Eastern, one of eight inner-city public high schools adopted by United nationwide, has transformed itself over the past decade. Under Principal Ralph Neal's leadership, the school has improved its image by rewarding academic achievement through a number of student and teacher incentive programs, broadening its curriculum to include gifted instruction, and emphasizing safety in school.
 In kick-off ceremonies last week at United's flight kitchen at Washington's Dulles International Airport, Glenn E. Wright, regional vice president-Southeast, told students, staff and administrators that United is looking forward to giving Eastern students a close-up and revealing look at airline careers.
 "Students are often surprised to discover the great variety of jobs available to them in commercial aviation," he said. "In addition to pilot, flight attendant and customer service positions, there are 2,800 other job titles at United Airlines, including doctors, lawyers, engineers, chefs, accountants, computer specialists, writers, loan officers and meteorologists."
 The Adopt-A-School program will include a series of visits to the school by United managers in Metropolitan Washington, for classroom discussions and field trips to Washington National, Dulles International and Baltimore-Washington International airports and United's reservations facility, where students will visit various departments and learn firsthand about the activities taking place there.
 United currently operates 87 daily flights at Dulles International Airport, including international service to London, Madrid, Brussels, Frankfurt, Mexico City, Milan/Rome and Paris. At National Airport, United operates 18 flights to Chicago and Orlando. At Baltimore-Washington International Airport, United operates six flights to Chicago and Denver.
