10/19/2012 - LIBERTY, Ohio -- For the third time, members of Youngstown Air Reserve Station have deployed to the local community in an effort to help students prepare for adult life.
Junior Achievement Mahoning Valley invited members of YARS to support their ethics outreach to Liberty High School October 18.
U.S. Marine Chief Warrant Officer 4 Emiliano DeLeon, an inspector instructor with YARS' Landing Support Equipment Company and former boot camp drill instructor was up to the task of mentoring the youth.
"Whenever I have the opportunity to influence kids for the better, I take advantage of it," said DeLeon. "My emphasis there was not to recruit, but to stimulate discussion with regards to ethics," he concluded.
Air Force Reserve Staff Sgt. Kalee Lint, a development training flight program manager with the 910th Airlift Wing, has been working for about two years with recent high school grads to prepare them for life in the Air Force Reserve.
This is Lint's second year working with high school students under the Junior Achievement Ethics outreach program.
DeLeon and Lint taught ethics to Patricia Depp's first three classes at Liberty High.
"I think the kids really enjoyed it. They liked the scenarios. They were fairly relevant," said Depp.
"Meeting with the speakers was a lesson in ethics as well as a lesson in courtesy for the students," she concluded.
