A woman making history got a send-off celebration and support from the city of Stockbridge.
First Lt. Andrea Lewis, from Stone Mountain, is the first African American female pilot in the history of the Georgia Air National Guard. She joined family and friends at Stockbridge city hall recently for the celebration before her deployment. Lewis’s twin sister, Victoria Pierrie, is a kindergarten teacher at Stockbridge Elementary School and organized an event celebrating her sister’s accomplishments at the school earlier in February. Lewis came by to meet and greet students, share her story, and pose for pictures.
