Congratulations Frank Reyes

Tracey Magrann says "My husband Frank won the Silver Snoopy Award from NASA. He is the first Metallurgy Engineer to win the award." 

NASA Silver Snoopy award, sterling silver lapel pin (tie tac), flown aboard Space Shuttle Discovery's STS-116 mission.

 "In Appreciation" "For professionalism, dedication and outstanding support that greatly enhanced space flight safety and mission success."

 Charles M. Schulz, who was an avid supporter of the U.S. space program, welcomed the idea of using Snoopy for the award. Schulz and United Feature Syndicate (the distributor of the Peanuts comic strip) agreed to let NASA use "Snoopy the Astronaut" at no cost. Schulz himself drew the image the award pin was based on. He also drew promotional art for posters to promote the award program.

The award is given personally by NASA astronauts as it represents the astronauts' own recognition of excellence. It is presented at the workplace of the recipient with the recipient's coworkers present. 

The award consists of a sterling silver "Silver Snoopy" lapel pin flown during a NASA mission, a commendation letter (stating the mission the Silver Snoopy pin was flown on) and a signed, framed Silver Snoopy certificate. Snoopy decals and posters are also given to the recipient. 

Employees of NASA or one of its contractors can be considered for a Silver Snoopy award if they have satisfied one or more of the following criteria:

         Significantly contributed beyond their normal work requirements to the development and implementation of human spaceflight programs while ensuring quality and safety.

         Accomplished single specific achievements that have had significant impact on attainment of a particular human spaceflight program goal while ensuring quality and safety.

         Contributed to a major cost saving or a series of lesser cost savings pertaining directly to human spaceflight programs.

         Has been instrumental in developing modifications to human spaceflight mission hardware, software, or materials that increase reliability, efficiency, or performance.

         Assisted in operational improvements that increase efficiency or performance.

         Has been a key player in developing a beneficial process improvement of significant magnitude.

         Contributed significantly beyond fundamental task accountabilities in support of the NASA programs.

         Sustained quality performance over an extended period of time in support of human spaceflight programs.

 

Since 1968, the program has awarded over fourteen-thousand people with a Silver Snoopy, as of September 2013. Silver Snoopy awards are limited to no more than 1% of eligible recipients. An individual can only receive one Silver Snoopy Award in their lifetime.

Congratulations

Tim Lanane

One of our in-law cousins is an Indiana state senator and was just named to lead its Demo caucus.  Here is a cut from an online article I saw:   INDIANAPOLIS -- INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Indiana Senate Democrats have elected Tim Lanane to lead their 13-member caucus in General Assembly. The caucus elected Lanane their minority leader Wednesday, one day after the election left the caucus with 13 seats, the same number it had previously. Lanane, an Anderson attorney, was served in the Senate since 1997. He succeeds Vi Simpson of Bloomington, who did not seek re-election but instead ran for lieutenant governor on John Gregg's ticket. The 37-13 Republican majority in the chamber was decided Wednesday when Republican incumbent Scott Schneider emerged victorious in his north side Indianapolis district, holding off a challenge by Democrat Tim DeLaney. Lanane said through the caucus's Twitter feed that he looked forward to building consensuses with Republicans on issues.   You go Tim!!!!
