United Continental Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: UAL) company United Airlines and the James R. Jordan Foundation said they are sending four straight-A Chicago-area students and their families on the trip of a lifetime as part of United Airlines´ “Family Dream Vacation Program.”
The hard-working students from Chicago´s West Haven and Englewood neighborhoods have earned an all-expense-paid trip to Disney World by meeting the rigorous requirements of the James R. Jordan Foundation´s A-Team Scholar Program and maintaining straight-A´s in all four core subjects throughout the entire school year.
“The determination and focus of these straight-A students are remarkable. Through partnerships with organizations like the James R. Jordan Foundation and others, together we´re able to help inspire the next generation of leaders,” said Mark Anderson, United´s senior vice president of government and community affairs. “At United, we know the importance of connecting people all over the world to fulfill their dreams.”
United Airlines and United Express operate an average of more than 5,300 flights a day to more than 360 airports across six continents.
