Caledonia — Sitting with his fourth grade class in the Dutton Elementary media center, Ryu Fleming used various colored pencils to draw an airplane flying in the sky.
In the front of the plane, he drew a small stick figure person wearing what appeared to be an airline captain’s cap.
Ryu shared with School News Network his hopes for the career path he’d like to pursue in the future.
