scholarship recipient

I am a sophomore at the U of M, and am currently at Johnson Space Center in Houston doing my second NASA internship. My time in the aerospace program at Minnesota has prepared me well for the position, and after graduation I plan to pursue a similar position whether at NASA, SpaceX, or something closer to home like Cirrus Aircraft. I also plan to eventually return to school for a master's degree. This scholarship will help give me more flexibility in my education and I look forward to the rest of my time in the aerospace program!
