Challenger Center Statement: John Glenn - A True American Hero

Press Release From:
Posted: Thursday, December 8, 2016

We are deeply saddened to hear about the passing of John Glenn. For the last several years, we were fortunate to have Senator Glenn serve on our Advisory Council, just one of the endless ways he demonstrated his commitment to inspiring the next generation of explorers. Today, our country lost an American hero who so many students – past, present and future – idolized. We are thankful for his years of service and so very grateful for all that he did to make this world a better place. We send our thoughts and prayers to his beloved wife Annie, along with his family and many friends. Godspeed, John Glenn.

- Lance Bush, Challenger Center President and CEO
