Dorothy J BolerBoler, MS

"My life story has been one of changing and chasing dreams. Growing up, my ambitions were simple but the expectations from my family and teachers were high."

Albert Brigham FutrellAlmo, KY

"I remember taking the Project Talent tests in the high school gym over several days. According to my test scores, I did well in math and science. I was encouraged to study these subjects and consider a career in these areas."

Phillip Allon GuilliamsCoshocton, OH

"I spent my childhood on a small farm in rural eastern Ohio. Since age 5, following the death of my mother, I was raised with a foster family. Growing up, I was really enthralled by the world of astronomy, science fiction, and the budding space program."

John C PerrineMoravia, NY

"The path – or even the destination – that we each take in life is not always clear at the outset. Since I was young, I felt that I had the potential, the drive, and the work ethic required to be successful."
