Aerospace Education Officer: I introduced nine science faculty and administrators, to adapting nationally accredited aerospace materials and curriculum into a platform that can now be utilized for a student body with physical disabilities like Cerebral Palsy, Muscular Dystrophy, Multiple Sclerosis, Spina Bifida, Traumatic Brain Injury, Osteogenesis Imperfecta and Spinal Muscular Atrophy. The Henry Viscardi School is a private, school that offers parents of children with severe physical disabilities and who often require life-sustaining medical treatment throughout the day, a traditional educational setting option that provides academics and opportunities for personal growth and leadership development. Most students at the use power wheelchairs and augmentative communication technology, and some require constant medical supervision. Although the students’ primary disability is physical, their range of complexity varies as secondary or tertiary disabilities are often factors. In 2016; I was honored to be the Henry Viscardi graduation speaker. For new adaptation of the aerospace curriculum and promoting aerospace education for disabled students, I was awarded the USAF CAP Aerospace Excellence Award.: 2014-2016.
