USS Nebraska visits Everett Elementary

U.S. Navy Crew members from USS Nebraska stopped by Everett Elementary in September.

The crew was on a statewide tour and took some time to share their experiences from working on the submarine. They visited various classes in the school and allowed students to ask questions about their jobs. 

“I think it’s really cool that we get to reach out to the community and talk about what we do,” USS Nebraska Crew Member Michael Pallanes said.

Students asked anything, including the length the crew stays underwater, seasickness and strange noises they heard while in the submarine.

“I thought an interesting thing was that they had to go up and down each time to watch out. Just in case they hit something,” second grade student Sydney said.

“I felt their questions were so well prepared and they were so thoughtful when asking their questions,” fifth grade teacher Liz Holdren said. 

USS Nebraska’s visit also gave students a new perspective about possible future careers, expanding their awareness of what’s available post-graduation.

“I learned that some of them talk to satellites which I think that’s very cool,” fifth grade student Chris said.

“I hope that we continue to have this opportunity in the future.  It’s really great for the students if we can have more people from different careers talk. That would be so meaningful,” Holdren added.
