Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) June 06, 2014
The Mesa Public Schools Aviation Camp, sponsored by Boeing, is a two week long program designed for students entering 7th or 8th grade who are interested in aviation. Dr. Shufeldt will fly into Falcon Field Airport from the Scottsdale Airpark where he offices MeMD and Outliers Publishing, as well as his hangars which house a T-28 Fighter Plane and Mustang Cessna in addition to his R66 helicopter.
Due to a generous sponsorship from a private donor, each camp participant will recieve a copy of Dr. Shufeldt’s student leadership book, "Ingredients of Outliers: Achieving Your Most Amazing Future". Dr. Shufeldt’s goal in writing "Ingredients of Young Outliers" was to serve as a surrogate mentor to young people, incorporating his most valuable lessons through his amusing misadventures, while also sharing the less highlighted stories of notable individuals who faced challenges on their way to success. Dr. Shufeldt will discuss with camp participants how he became involved in aviation as an ER physician and business entrepreneur.
