Raylene Alexander, a professor at Kansas State University-Salina, has created a mentoring program for female airframe and powerplant students in the
U.S. Alexander said the main objective of the Jet Ahead program is to “connect students with an experienced mentor who can answer questions and help alleviate concerns.” She also designed the program “to assist students in improving their networking and career development skills.” The program has been in development for two years and has already kept one student from dropping out of her studies, Alexander said. She is now seeking volunteers to become mentors.
