NASA Engineer Dr. Renee Horton visits CHDHS!

On February 4th our International Baccalaureate students had a remarkable opportunity to hear Dr. Renee Horton speak at our school.

About Dr. Horton: "Dr. Horton has excelled in her career despite going through many obstacles in her journey. She graduated with a Ph.D. in Material Science with a concentration in Physics from the University of Alabama as the first African American to receive this degree. Dr. Horton serves as a NASA Space Launch System (SLS) Quality Engineer at Michoud Assembly Facility (MAF) in New Orleans. Throughout her academic career, Dr. Horton, has received numerous accolade and awards including the Black Engineer of the Year Trailblazer Award in 2011."

Thank you Dr. Horton for your time, life lessons and inspiration to all of us!
