Hometown Hero: Winston Scott (in-person or online)

Hometown Hero: Winston Scott (in-person or online) In-Person

Please join us as we welcome Miami native and former NASA astronaut Winston Scott to NSU. We will begin with a screening of WLRN's documentary Hometown Hero: Winston Scott, produced by multiple Emmy award-winner Michael Anderson. Following the screening, Michael and Winston will discuss Winston's journey from segregated Coconut Grove where he did not have access to science, technology, and engineering courses that would have fostered these interests. Winston discovers that he has a talent for music, and he begins to pursue it. As a result, this route proves to be the key that unlocks the door to his future and demonstrates that anything is possible with a little ingenuity and perseverance

Garage parking is complimentary, pizza will be served, and we'll give away 50 copies of Winston's Book Reflections from Earth Orbit.
