Principal Robin Board is thrilled to announce that NASA astronaut Dr. John Herrington will speak to 700 students and teachers at Charles T. Koontz Intermediate School, Tuesday morning April 19th, encouraging kids to dream big and think about the impact they can have on the world. The program begins at 9:10 a.m.
“I am delighted for our students to have the opportunity to listen to NASA astronaut, Dr. Herrington, and hear his inspiring message of believing in yourself and setting goals to achieve great things in life,” says Board. “I know he will have a captive audience.”
Dr. Herrington, a member of the Chickasaw Nation in Oklahoma, flew to the International Space Station in 2002 about the shuttle Endeavour. The historic mission included three space walks, the delivery of the Expedition-Six crew, the delivery, installation and activation of the P1 Truss, and the transfer of cargo to the station.
