HARTSFIELD IN THE COMMUNITY II 

Partners in Education a Shining Beacon in Clayton County
By Orzy Theus

A North Clayton County High School student is the recipient of a paid summer internship at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

Senior Nayka Rainer will spend part of her summer learning the ins and outs of the aviation industry as part of the Airport’s community relations program titled Partners in Education (PIE). North Clayton High and M.D. Roberts Middle School also honored the PIE program recently for its contribution to the Clayton County School District.

PIE programs have included Hartsfield-Jackson employees donating school supplies, providing support to Latino Heritage events, Black History Month events and Women’s History Month programs. The Airport also sponsors a seminar in which students are taught how to achieve success, as well as a program to mentor young males. Furthermore, the Job Shadowing initiative brings students on-site to gain insight on careers in aviation.

Rainer’s win was announced at a May 8 reception, where PIE coordinators and volunteers and students heard remarks by Georgia Rep. Mike Glanton. He encouraged Clayton and Fulton county students and their parents to recruit family and friends for school functions. He said their participation is important because it takes all stakeholder groups working together to prepare young people to compete in a global economy.
