​Hidden Figures Event 9/14/17

On Thursday, September 14th, approximately 450 middle and high school students from the Antelope Valley Union High School District attended an event at Eastside High School for showing of the film, “Hidden Figures,” about Black women employees at NASA during the 1960’s.  After watching the film, a panel of four female “Modern Figures” from NASA Armstrong Flight Research Center, including CJ Bixby, Jennifer Cole, Janeya Griffin, and Nikki Martin, answered questions and provided inspiring stories of their experiences.  The young ladies who attended responded enthusiastically to the event.
