Curtis Elementary students graduate STARBASE

Master Sgt. Jeff Walston, a public affairs technician assigned the 307th Bomb Wing, Barksdale Air Force Base, La., speaks to a group of 5th graders and their parents at Curtis Elementary school in Bossier City, La., May 22, 2013. Walston was the guest speaker for a graduation ceremony at the school. The students completed an exciting 25-hour hands on/minds on aviation and aerospace course offered to area 5th grade students and their teachers by STARBASE Louisiana, at Barksdale. The program is one of 70 national STARBASE sites, and is sponsored by the 307th BW of the Air Force Reserve Command. Many U.S. Air Force servicemembers volunteer to speak at the graduation ceremonies to help motivate the students to continue their education. This was Walston’s fifth graduation ceremony. Speakers are always welcomed and always needed. Any officer or senior non-commissioned officer interested in motivating these young people should contact the 307th Bomb Wing Public Affairs Office at 318-529-3023 to be put on the speaker’s list.
