Purdue signature

Ann Broughton

Ann Broughton (Aeronautics and Astronautics):
 I would like to recognize Ann Broughton for being our Purdue Space Day coordinator for several years. This was Ann's last PSD, as she has announced her retirement at the end of the school year. During her leadership, this program has continued to grow. It has allowed so many students to see Purdue -- for the first time in many cases -- and has continued to grow their interest in STEM activities. This year, we had close to 700 students that participated with more than 250 Purdue student volunteers. Ann has coordinated this entire program. We will miss the level of caring and professionalism that she has brought to this very important program and how she has continued to keep our Purdue astronauts involved in these STEM outreach activities. -- Rita Baines (University Development Office)
