As a part of the this year’s Middle School theme “House of Heroes” one middle school advisory selected Capt. Chesley B. “Sully” Sullenberger to be their hero.
Capt. Sully was responsible for landing the plane in the Hudson River that was carrying, among other passengers, one Cannon 6th grader’s father.
Today, with the help of Middle School teacher Jennifer Lehman, the group got a chance to greet Capt. Sully on the runway near the Aviation Museum in Charlotte with signs that read:
“ Capt. Sully is Our Hero! Thanks for Saving My Dad”
This was an awesome experience for our Cannon students. It’s always great to meet your hero!
