Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) -- A student of Ordean East Middle School has received the Apollo Gilruth Continuum Award for excellence she showed in the classroom.

Rebecca Miles received the award on Monday at the Ordean East Middle School Auditorium.

The Duluth Aviation Institute along with the middle school science teachers taught 11 lessons in aviation science this past semester and Miles excelled in the classroom activities, plane quizzes, and extra credit projects.

While accepting the award, Miles expressed her appreciation for the Path to Aviation Program and how much she has learned from the lessons.

The top 15% students who have showed excellence throughout the program will be rewarded with the Young Eagles Flight from Sky Harbor on Saturday March 2.

In collaboration with the district, the Duluth Aviation Institute has been bringing aviation into the classrooms since 2012 and is currently presenting their program in Lincoln Park and Ordean East Middle Schools.
