Flight Director Spotlight: Debbie Reynolds

Today we’re delighted to give a well-deserved shout-out to Debbie Reynolds, the Flight Director of the IKS Highlander at J.E. Harrison Middle School.

Also known as Admiral Northgate, Debbie is one of only a few dozen teachers across the country chosen for the NASA Space Educator Program.  In February, she attended the Space Educator Expedition Crew Program in Houston. Among the astronauts she spoke to there was Nancy Currie-Gregg, a veteran of four space shuttle missions.

If that wasn’t cool enough, Debbie is one of 50 members of the public invited to watch the next space shuttle launch (originally scheduled for next Monday) as participants in the NASA Social program. She’ll also have the opportunity to tour the Kennedy Space Center as well as speak with members of NASA’s social media team and other NASA officials.

Debbie was recently featured on CBS Pittsburgh, with both an article and a TV spot.  The video talks all about Debbie’s recent space adventures, and it shows several of her lucky students running missions on the IKS Highlander.  Be sure to check it out!
