  • CAP and AFA shared a booth to inform educators about the aerospace and STEM educational resources offered by CAP and the AFA in Rapid City for the Technology in Education (TIE) conference. TIE is a division of Black Hills Special Services Cooperative (BHSSC).
  • Members of South Dakota CAP Wing and AFA South Dakota joined hands to share educational programs with educators during the Spring Leadership Educator Conference of the South Dakota Education Association (SDEA).
