Mena EAST Students Fly Drones

Kyle Rowland with the Polk County Emergency Management Services recently gave the Mena Middle School EAST students an opportunity to fly drones.  “The students are very interested in learning about drones and how they can be used,” said MMS EAST Facilitator, Melissa Lunsford. Caleb Crow, student, determined drones could be used to scan roofs for damage.  This would allow the elderly a way to actually see their roof to avoid being scammed by people selling them a new roof when they don’t need one.
