WV BEAR Mission Has Ties to Former Teacher
Posted on October 31, 2023
It is amazing how things in life come full circle! The school had a recent visit from Mrs. Linda Jackson, widow of William “Bill” Jackson, for whom the WV BEAR missions are named. During Mr. Jackson’s long and successful career with NASA, he met and mentored TCS STEM coordinator Marcus Fisher. After her husband’s death, Mrs. Jackson, a former TCS math teacher, donated numerous awards and artifacts collected by her husband over his years of service at NASA. They now adorn the walls of our STEM lab and will serve as inspiration for our students! When Mrs. Jackson served the school years ago, who would have imagined that our STEM students would be working on a NASA mission named after her husband?
