Commander Collins Visit

On Monday, April 22nd the Central Catholic community was honored to have Mrs. Eileen Collins present to over fifty of our young men in Coach Curran’s room. Mrs. Collins is a former test pilot, a Colonel in the United States Air Force, and the first woman space shuttle commander!
Mrs. Collins narrated a mission video of her crew docking with the international space station. Commander Collins also educated our young men on the future of human space flight. A question and answer session followed Mrs. Collins' presentation.
Mrs. Collins concluded her presentation by asking the students questions about space and the space program. Correct answers received a Milky Way and Mars candy bar! Thank you to Mrs. Collins and to all in attendance, this proved again to be a wonderful experience for all involved.
Special thank you to Mr. Bendele for taking some great photos! Go Buttons!
