Thunderbird Crew Members Visit With Students


Air Force Thunderbird crew members took a break from their busy training and traveling schedule to drop by their alma mater...Judson High School.  Their visit was in conjunction with the Thunderbird show back in November, but they felt it was important to go back to their roots.  Both Major Christopher Scheibler and Staff Sergeant Matthew Gips spoke to about 30 members of the JROTC program about what their experience has been and how they got there.  Both had some great advice for the students...giving 100 percent of themselves if they really want something...go for it with everything they have.  They also talked about some great teachers who pushed them to help them realize abilities they didn't know they had. Both men not only are Judson graduates, but they also went to Olympia Hills and Kitty Hawk Middle School. Scheibler is a flight surgeon for the Thunderbirds while Gips is in the administration end, but also assists in recording the shows for video promotional material.  JISD is appreciative of their visit.
