Accepted to participate in the Texas High School Aerospace Scholars program at NASA is Fairfield High School Junior, Jack Ezell.

The first student ever selected for this program from Fairfield, Ezell will complete a series of online assignments and essays over a four-month period during the school year.

Then, this summer, he will travel to Houston to NASA for a six-day residential summer experience where students will tour NASA facilities, complete team projects and attend briefings directed my NASA engineers and scientists, and participate in hands-on design challenges and engineering activities for planning a “Mission to Mars.”

Congratulations to Jack for a job well done!
