Greetings to the LAA family.
On Tuesday, March 14, 2017 the Langley Alumni Association met in the NACA Room in the Cafeteria at NASA Langley Research Center. Our speaker was Clayton Turner, Deputy Director of the NASA Langley Research Center. He gave an excellent presentation on the current status of the center and he was optimistic about the future. He was excited about the NASA Langley Research Center family and said the Alumni Association was an important member of that family.
We have added a new section to our website for the Langley Research Center NACA and NASA Hall of Honor. This is an important partnership between the LAA and LaRC to honor the pioneers and contributors to LaRC over the years. We will be inducting the second class on Thursday, June 1, 2017 as part of the LaRC Centennial Celebration. We will be announcing the honorees for that class in the near future.
The LAA Board is continuing to pursue information on spousal benefits. President Ira Abbott will work with Gail Langevin to acquire the necessary information.
