Former NASA astronaut Winston Scott will speak at noon March 19 in the Old Administration Building Auditorium at Fresno City College.
The event is free and open to the public. A reception in the west courtyard of the Old Administration Building will follow the speech.
Scott served as a mission specialist on two space shuttles — Columbia and Endeavor — in the 1990s. He will speak about his NASA experience, his time as a Navy fighter pilot prior to becoming an astronaut and his experiences growing up in the segregated South. He is now the dean of the College of Aeronautics at Florida Institute of Technology.
