On this day in 1783, Pilâtre de Rozier and the Marquis d'Arlandes made the first free ascent in a balloon. They flew from the center of Paris for about five and a half miles. Benjamin Franklin was in Paris for the event. Reporting on what he saw, he wrote, "We observed it lift off in the most majestic manner. When it reached around 250 feet in altitude, the intrepid voyagers lowered their hats to salute the spectators. We could not help feeling a certain mixture of awe and admiration."

    My younger daughter is there now and will graduate this year. She has excelled tremendously. She has forensics and robotics this year and is pursing an education in engineering. My older daughter also graduated and received a scholarship to Penn State and is a Pharmaceutical Rep. I graduated from her as well as my mother and Grandmother. It is an excellent school for sisterhood. I am still friends with my friends from high school and so is my older daughter. Highly recommend this school
