ST. GEORGE – In conjunction with the upcoming Thunder Over Utah Air Show in Utah’s Dixie March 17-18, Dixie State College of Utah will welcome the United States Navy Blue Angels to campus for a special community event on Friday, March 16, beginning at 8:30 a.m., at the Eccles Fine Arts Center Mainstage Theater.
The event is free and open to all DSC students, faculty and staff, and the community to attend.
The convocation will feature a formal program introducing the U.S. Navy Blue Angel pilots and crew, along with a performance by Northwest Passage, the Navy’s top-40 style rock band. This will be a great event for all high school and college age students and the community to meet and greet the Navy Blue Angel pilots, who will share their thoughts on flying, leadership and what it means to be a front runner in America.
In addition, there will be a Navy Simulator Ride on site in the Eccles parking lot that will be open to the public that morning until 12 p.m. The Navy Simulator is a full-motion ride with high-definition video and surround-sound that simulates the environments in which the U.S. Navy operates, whether under the sea, on the ocean, or in the air and outer space.
