Boeing and Charleston County School District partner with Medical University of South Carolina to expand mental health resources in schools

In September, Boeing and the Charleston County School District (CCSD) each announced a $1 million investment in the Medical University of South Carolina’s (MUSC) Boeing Center for Children’s Wellness (BCCW) to expand the program’s offerings to include resources addressing children’s mental health in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Supports will include training for classroom teachers to help children find appropriate coping mechanisms and ways to deal with stress as well as integration of MUSC Telehealth which will bring high quality, evidence-based, trauma-focused mental health services to children in a school setting. In addition, this funding will support the development of a plan to substantially change and improve the mental health system. Read more about the investment here.

10 years of delivering the dream

September 25 marked the 10-year anniversary of Boeing’s first 787 Dreamliner delivery to All Nippon Airways. Since then, the Dreamliner has enabled more than 320 new direct routes and carried more than 565 million passengers worldwide.

We thank all of our 787 customers, passengers, and Boeing teammates around the world for making the dream a reality. We look forward to many more decades to come.

Teammates in the Community

Since the start of the year, our teammates have participated in more than 850 DreamLearners activities, most recently participating in the Summerville YMCA’s Flowertown Festival and Charleston’s Latin American Festival.

BSC teammate Jennifer Branton (pictured) grew up attending the Summerville YMCA’s Flowertown Festival with her family and friends. “Supporting this event for Boeing lets me enjoy the atmosphere of the festival while also sharing information about our great company to others,” she said.

During Hispanic Heritage Month, members of BSC’s Boeing Familia Business Resource Group volunteered to participate in Charleston’s Latin American Festival. The group looks forward to continuing to inspire, develop and connect our teammates and communities all year long.

Congratulations to the Charleston RiverDogs, Low-A East Champions!

Charleston’s minor league baseball team, the RiverDogs, secured its first championship in franchise history in September. It’s also the first championship for a professional baseball team in the city of Charleston since 1922.

We were proud to partner with the RiverDogs during the 2021 season to honor our military heroes through Military Appreciation Nights. Additionally, four outstanding military veterans with Lowcountry ties were entered into the Hall of Honor: Brigadier General Thomas Mikolajcik, Chief William Tetrev, Master Sergeant Tom Crawford, and Major Angie Powers. Read about each honoree here.

September 15 marked thirty years since the C-17 Globemaster III took off for its first flight. It entered service about three years later and has been at the forefront of every global humanitarian response ever since.

We are proud of our teammates who support the C-17 at Joint Base Charleston, and we love seeing them fly over the Lowcountry.
