Students at one Richmond County school are being adopted by the men and women of the U.S. Air Force.
In years past, military involvement at school usually revolved around ROTC programs.
This program, according to Lieutenant Colonel Brad Borke, will take the airmen out of traditional military training at schools and put them inside the classroom.
These Air Force mentors will be working several times a week at the school with kids on everything from academics to art to technology - and one area of particular interest - robotics.
"We actually have airmen who are into robotics and we'll be working with the school to help with one of their grants in starting up a robotics club," says Lt. Col. Borke.
The Air Force will also be working with the school to expand its Physical Education program.
Right now, the school only has track and golf programs. The Air Force will help the school institute sports days and fun runs into its extra-curricular activities.
