Thirty years ago something happened that would ultimately change thousands upon thousands of lives: Victor Williamson took a job at Central Elementary School in Pleasant Grove, Utah.
Out of Victor’s vision and imagination, the Christa McAuliffe Space Education Center emerged and uplifted more than 300,000 students. I was one of those students, and my experiences at the Space Center had such a profound effect on me that I’ve spent most of my life since then carrying on the Space Center’s magical legacy through Dream Flight Adventures.
This past week Victor conducted his final mission at the Space Center. Victor, along with this historic crew, are pictured above. The emotion was so strong that it was physically impossible to hold the camera still. We have our best computer imaging experts hard at work trying to clear up this photo.
But this momentous end is also a new beginning. Victor’s dreams, vision, and drive live on, and Victor is now moving on to new endeavors at the Space EdVentures Foundation and Farpoint Institute, with which Dream Flight Adventures is a proud partner. Together we’re pursuing the shared goal of bringing magical transformative educational adventures to a new generation of kids—the bright young minds who shepherd our future.
It’s going to be a fantastic voyage! Why don’t you come along for the ride?
