Reaching for the stars

Eliza Murphy recently shared some good news about one of her ACA 122 students:

Jimmy Acevedo just got into the NASA Community College Scholars program. Jimmy is currently enrolled in the Associate in Science program and has a keen eye on eventually working in the aerospace industry. To qualify for this program, students must be enrolled in a community college and have demonstrated success in nine or more credits of STEM-related courses. Once students are accepted into the program, they must complete a five-week online course. A number of those students who successfully complete the online course are hand-selected to participate in an expenses-paid trip to a NASA space center.”

Congratulations, Jimmy!
