Matthew and Josh Lipsey both received
the coveted "Right Stuff Award" during graduation ceremonies at SPACE CAMP® on
Sept 29th, at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center® in Huntsville, Alabama. They was
chosen over hundreds of other students for the top award this week.
"This is the highest award we can
bestow upon our trainees," according to Samantha Petersen, Aerospace Programs
Manager at SPACE CAMP. "We look for certain qualities such as leadership,
decision making and the willingness to seek and share knowledge in those we will
nominate for the award. Matt and Josh have all of those qualities," she adds.
Right Stuff Award winners are typically young adults who demonstrate they are
preparing to become the leaders of their generation.
