JetBlue Founder Principal For A Day


David Neeleman, CEO and founder of JetBlue Airlines, served as principal for a day at Beach Channel High School. During his visit, Neeleman visited the students enrolled in Beach Channel High School’s Airline Academy. He told the students that if they show up at work on time and with a positive attitude, they are already better than 75%of the workforce. His advice to the Beach Channel student body is to have a good attitude because, “Your attitude often determines your altitude.” Neeleman told the students that he struggled with a learning disability throughout his childhood. Today he sends out 367 flights per day. Neeleman’s attitude, hard work and determination has paid off. Beach Channel High School appreciated the time Neeleman spent at the school and the interest he has in the student body.David Neeleman, CEO and founder of JetBlue Airlines, served as principal for a day at Beach Channel High School. During his visit, Neeleman visited the students enrolled in Beach Channel High School’s Airline Academy. He told the students that if they show up at work on time and with a positive attitude, they are already better than 75%of the workforce.
