One Response to “Astronaut aimed for excellence, stars”

  1. Debbie McLarnan

    Dr. Kathryn Sullivan was an absolutely wonderful, captivating speaker. Her comments and photos, as well as her fantastic sense of humor, at last evening’s event captured the hearts and minds of all of us who attended. What a truly awe-inspiring life she has lead!

    I think her comment will always be etched upon my heart….
    ‚ÄúThe surest way to get to a grand destination you dream about is to approach every single day, in and out of school, as a chance to tap learning from the people in the world around you. Learn as much as you can and put excellent fingerprints on everything you do. From the simplest homework assignment to the science fair project or whatever it is, that is your handywork. So, aim for excellence, aim to continually be learning.”

    Kathy is a marvelous example of what one can do if he/she aims for excellence – – they can truly reach the stars.
