Space Camp Hall of Fame Wrap Up
Below are some remarks from NASA’s Deputy Administrator Lori Garver’s speech during the event:
First congratulations to those we are here to celebrate for their incredible accomplishments and contributions to space‐‐the Hall of Fame inductees.
It’s also hard to believe that it’s been almost a quarter century since my husband David and I went through the Space Academy Program. We had just been married at the time. Yes, this is one of the first things we did as newlyweds. Not embarrassing?? And we’re not the only ones. I understand that Francis French, honored here tonight, met his future wife at Space Academy Level II. Look out match.com.
The inductees into the Hall of Fame ‐‐ you’ve taken your passions and turned them into professions in science, education, military and the museum world, and then you’ve shared your experiences and touched the lives of young people around the world – you are making your contribution and leaving the world better than you found it.
