TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - A program at Tupelo High School is working to empower a new generation of engineers.
Leah Vaugh, a student in the engineering class, is learning as much as possible to lead her to her dream job.
“NASA is the big goal,” she said.
During the two-year program, students learn the basics of engineering and have the knowledge to further their education at a university, or immediately enter the workforce.
“They can go Mississippi State or any engineering college and be successful," Instructor Brian Petrie said.
