Knowledgent Informationist Sarah Krikorian is an Astronaut Scholar from Tufts University, 1995-1996. She is now a lifelong member of the Astronaut Scholar Honor Society (ASHS). Sarah was chosen as one of the best and brightest students pursuing science, technology, engineering, or math (STEM) degrees showing initiative, creativity, and excellence in her chosen field.
Being selected as an Astronaut Scholar is the beginning of a life-long bond with the Foundation and other Astronaut Scholars who have formed a strong alumni association. A mentoring program has been put in place for current scholars to have access to scholar alum and astronauts. They participate in regional scholar events throughout the year. In addition, the scholars meet annually at the time of the Foundation Board of Directors meeting and the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame Induction at Kennedy Space Center and participate in special programs, including a technical conference.
At the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame, Sarah got the chance to meet with Astronauts Charlie Duke, John Blaha, Rick Armstrong, Loren Shriver, Curt Brown, Scott Altman, Brian Duffy, Michael Foale, and media personalities John Zarella and Mark Larson.
We are so excited that Sarah represented Knowledgent at this prestigious event!
