SPACE CAMPSTUDENTS ENJOY SPACE CAMP EXPERIENCE, THANKS TO NORTHROP GRUMMAN SCHOLARSHIP 

Thanks to a scholarship from Northrop Grumman Corporation, two District 15 students had the experience of a lifetime at Space Camp in Huntsville, Alabama this month. Students Valeria and Carolina earned a scholarship to attend the camp based upon academic performance in school and interest in science and space. Willow Bend teacher Julie Goostree also attended Space Camp with the students. 

Valeria and Carolina were recognized by the Board of Education during its Aug. 15 meeting, and along with Ms. Goostree, led the board room in reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. 

The group had a wonderful time, learning about the NASA program and meeting new friends. Both Valeria and Carolina said their experience at Space Camp would influence their school course selections and future career paths.

Thank you to Northrop Grumman for offering this experience to our students and staff!
