HOKE COUNTY KINDERGARTEN STUDENT IS MAKING A DIFFERENCE BY CREATING PRAYER ROCKS
By David Ivey, Spectrum News
HOKE COUNTY, N.C. -- Kameron Maynor is just 6 years old, and he’s determined to try and help people. So with the help of his family, he’s creating a business called "KP Rocks" or "Kameron’s Prayer Rocks".
Customers send in requests for an individual rock, then Kameron decorates it with special words or paints the customer’s name on it. After making it customized for that person, the 6-year-old then says a prayer over the rock as he holds it in his hands- a specific prayer for a specific person.
His parents tell us that since starting his business in December of last year, nearly 300 people have become customers. They tell us their family has a long tradition of faith and that was the foundation to begin this.
Another motivation was to help people as they confront the COVID-19 pandemic. Kameron has created special rocks and prayers for essential workers like those in healthcare, along wth police and firefighters.
FIRST HOKE STUDENTS PASS FAA REMOTE PILOT CERTIFICATION
Congratulations to Sayeed Kabir, Danny Pham, and Xander Amores Vasquez for passing the FAA Remote Pilot Certification at Cape Fear Aviation on June 1, 2020! This certificate demonstrates that these students understand the regulations, operating requirements, and procedures for safely flying drones.
These students are in the Drone Technology Class taught by Mr. Mario Malabunga at Hoke County High School. This course, which began during the 2019-2020 school year, is designed to provide students basic information about the drone industry to gain an understanding of careers and skills in this field. FAA 14 CFR part 107 (The Small UAS Rule), officially known as "Part 107 Remote Pilot Certificate" is covered. The Small UAS rule adds a new part 107 to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) to allow for routine civil operation of small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) in the National Airspace System (NAS) and provide safety rules for those operations. This course is also designed for an introduction to basic flight of drones to include manual flight and mapping software. English language arts are reinforced. Students must be 16 years of age before the end of the course. Students cannot test until they are 16 and testing is the method used to determine proficiency for our Federal Accountability.
