Graham Yennie awarded ASF Scholarship

Graham Yennie ASF Scholarship WinnerCongratulations to Graham Yennie, for receiving a $10,000 scholarship from the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation (ASF). The Foundation was started in 1984 by the six surviving Mercury 7 astronauts to aid the US in retaining its world leadership in science and technology by providing scholarships to the very best and brightest STEM students. Now there are more than 80 astronauts from the Gemini, Apollo, Skylab, Space Shuttle and Space Station programs that have joined in supporting this educational program. Graham is one of only 22 students selected nationwide this year to receive this award.
