The NASA/JPL (Jet Propulsion Lab) Solar System Ambassador Program has selected Nick Eakes, one of Morehead’s educators, to be an ambassador for the state of North Carolina this year. The program is a public outreach program designed to work with motivated volunteers across the nation.
“It’s a great opportunity for me,” said Eakes. “Being an ambassador lets me share something I’m excited about and get the public excited about it too.”
As a volunteer, Eakes will be communicating information about JPL missions directly from mission specialists to the local community. Ambassadors hold at least four related events per year. This appointment runs from Jan. 1, 2014 to Dec. 31, 2014 with the opportunity to renew at the end of the year.
