MOBILE, Ala. (AP) -- A Mobile high school is preparing to debut a new aviation program -- just in time for the arrival of a new aircraft assembly plant nearby.
Larry Mouton with Mobile County Public Schools tells The Press-Register (http://bit.ly/NWlqGI ) that B.C. Rain High School will pilot its new Aerospace and Aviation Academy in the upcoming 2012-13 year with up to 80 students.
The struggling school is in the middle of a $15 million renovation and is using an $8 million federal grant to bolster its academics.
Mouton says the program will help prepare students for high-paying, in-demand jobs.
Airbus announced earlier this month that it would build its first airplane factory in the U.S. in Mobile.
