Wings Teacher Flight Celebration
On the evening of November 6th, Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum paid tribute to over 170 teachers from all over the Front Range who had taken part in the Museum’s Teacher Flight Program. Each teacher that attended had the opportunity to get their picture taken with Eileen Collins, the Honorary Chair for the Teacher Flight Program. Col. Collins was the first female Space Shuttle Commander and Pilot and graciously thanked each teacher in attendance. Also in attendance were Lt. Governor Joe Garcia, Deputy Commissioner of Education Keith Owen, and former Aurora Public Schools Superintendent John Barry.
