Thank you to Mr. Rafael Martinez '83 (CHHS-Board of Directors) and his daughter, Chelsea Martinez, and their non-profit Reaching New Heights, who sponsored two separate opportunities for Cardinal Hayes students to explore their passion and a possible career choice for flying. The young Hayesmen enjoyed a one-day introduction to Aviation/Discovery Flight, where they were taught the wonders of aviation.
Beginning their day at the Republic Airport (KFRG), two students and one pilot per plane, then flew to Brookhaven Airport (KHWV) and back, exploring the wonders of the skies and the land below. One of our Hayesmen, Teddy Holland '23, was so thrilled and amazed by this opportunity, he is excited to further pursue his dream of flying as a pilot or entertaining the idea of flying in the United States Air Force.
A big thank you again to our friends at Reaching New Heights for providing our young Hayesmen with a once in a lifetime opportunity like this so they can begin exploring their future professions at such a young age.
The Mission of Cardinal Hayes High School, a community based in Roman Catholic values, is to inspire diverse young men of the New York City metropolitan area to become lifelong learners and responsible citizens. We will accomplish this goal by encouraging students' spiritual and intellectual growth through a rigorous college preparatory program of academics, extra-curricular activities, and personal discipline.
