NASA and the Eastern Shore Community College (ESCC) in Melfa, Virginia, signed a Space Act Agreement Oct. 22 that will expand opportunities for education, workforce development, and research.
The agreement builds on nearly 60 years of educational support NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility has provided to residents of the Eastern Shore of Virginia.
“Quite a few Wallops employees got their start at Eastern Shore Community College, which has served our region for more than 50 years as a launchpad for careers,” said David L. Pierce, Wallops Facility Director. “This agreement positions NASA well into the future by helping to create a highly-skilled workforce that is diverse and talented.”
