Paul Calleja recently visited the U.S. Navy aircraft carrier John C. Stennis 100 miles off the coast of San Diego to learn about military experience and the opportunities it affords to young people.
More than two years ago, Calleja, who is himself a pilot, read about the chance to take part in a mentorship and community relations initiative called the Distinguished Visitor Embark Program. The program places leaders from all sectors of society — corporate, civic, government, education, nonprofit and service — aboard a deployed carrier. Calleja is a clinical associate professor of kinesiology at the University of Arkansas.
