What's Happening

It’s not everyday that you get to become CEO of an international company, especially when you are in 5th grade. But for Daybreak resident, Bennett Kasallis, his dream of being CEO of Delta Airlines came true when his class from Daybreak Elementary visited BizTown for Junior Achievement in Salt Lake City. And not only did Bennett get to become CEO for the day, but the real CEO of Delta Airlines even chimed in with some advice.

“We’ve always been proud to be part of the amazing Delta family, but this blew us away,” shared Channing Kasallis (Bennett’s mom). “Bennett represented Delta today as CEO at BizTown. To get a better idea of what the job entailed, he emailed Ed Bastian CEO of Delta Airlines for some advice.”

Daybreak Elementary student Bennett Kasallis writes to Delta Airlines CEO Ed Bastian.

“Knowing how busy Ed Bastian is, we didn’t expect a reply at all,” shared Channing. “But less than 12 hours later, Bennett received this amazing response.”
