Astronaut Came to Town
| Lieutenant Commander William C.(Willie) McCool,
From NASA came to Polo High School on May 4, 1998. he spent the day with the kids going
from class to class and answering questions about the space program. Then at 6:00 P.M. He
gave the adults the same opportunity. He gave a slide show on a shuttle mission, and some
very interesting information on what goes on behind the scenes.
I guess the weather was too nice, we didn't have as big a crowd as we had hoped for, But most of the good cooks in town showed up and the food was great, and a good time was had by all.
