Six St. Tammany Educators Receive NASA Recognition

Six St. Tammany Parish Public School System educators who are taking part in a new NASA Education Fellows program at Michoud in New Orleans this year were visited by a NASA official recently. Steve Turner, Director of Safety and Mission Assurance for NASA at Michoud (right), thanked the teachers for participating in the first Michoud Education Fellows program, giving them each a framed display of a group photograph with several astronauts, the special program patch, and a small American flag that flew in space aboard the Discovery Space Shuttle in June of 2008. School System staff and others on hand to congratulate Secondary Science Curriculum Specialist Dr. Paulette Perrin (third from right) and others on their participation in the inaugural program were, from left, Secondary Supervisor Dr. Regina Sanford, Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction Cheryl Arabie, Fine Arts Supervisor Peggy Sharpe, and Senior Supervisor Denise Parker. Second from right is Dr. Pam Blanchard, an LSU science professor involved with the NASA Education Fellows program, which aimed to involve teachers in the Michoud space program operations in order to encourage their students to work towards a career with NASA. The St. Tammany teacher participants in the Michoud program are Dr. Perrin, Deborah Nunez, Paul Chandler, Ruth Hill, Crystal Drake, and Joanne Hobson.
