A Lecture by Carl McNair
CEO and President of the McNair Achievement Programs, educator, inspirational speaker, and living brother of Dr. Ronald E. McNair
The McNair Achievement Program was created in honor of Carl’s brother who died along with his astronaut colleagues aboard the Space Shuttle Challenger in 1986. Through McNair's programs, students have been inspired and encouraged to pursue careers in STEM fields and other related careers. McNair’s presentation will explore what is achievable when we truly embrace diversity, drawing lessons of hope and inspiration from his own life experiences. Mr. McNair authored a book entitled In the Spirit of Ronald E. McNair-Astronaut, an inspirational and motivational biography of the life and achievements of his brother.
This event is free and open to the public.
