Fickett Elementary turns a negative into a positive with help from 11Alive, AirTran

What started out as a lamentable situation has become something inspirational after Fickett Elementary suffered a break-in over the weekend. The school’s broadcast room was robbed of important electronic equipment by thieves and vandals. That’s the bad news. The inspirational news is that WXIA (11Alive) swooped in for a visit on Monday afternoon, reported from the scene, and invited students to appear on the station’s morning show Tuesday! And in what truly has become a situation where you take lemons and make lemonade, community partner AirTran has vowed to help replace the equipment, whose estimated value is $5,000. Thanks, AirTrain!

  1. Can a teacher from another county participate in the program? I have been trying to become a employee of APS with no sucess so far. Despite what they say in the news I still believe in APS and superintendent Dr. Hall. This is the best school system around.
