Congratulations Dave and Danny!06.03.2009

Congratulations to David Gregory, Assistant Chief of the Balloon Program Office (BPO) and to Danny Ball, Site Manager at the Columbia Scientific Balloon Facility. Today in Greenbelt Maryland the 2009 NASA Honor Awards Ceremony will take place and two of BPO's very own will be on the receiving line for this prestigious award.

David Gregory will receive the NASA Exceptional Service Medal. This award is granted for significant performance characterized by unusual initiative or creative ability that clearly demonstrates substantial improvements in engineering, aeronautics, space flight, administration, support, or space-related endeavors which contribute to NASA programs.

Danny Ball will receive the NASA Exceptional Public Service Medal. This award is granted to anyone who is not a Government employee when the service was performed and recognizes exceptional contributions to the mission of NASA.

We are very fortunate to have both these individuals working for Balloon's past, present and future success and that NASA has acknowledged their accomplishments with these awards.
