Kelly to address students

PENSACOLA, Fla. -- Retired astronaut Mark Kelly will be the keynote speaker during the May 11 grand opening for the first class of students attending the National Flight Academy. Kelly is the husband of former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, wounded in a shooting during an outdoor event last year. Kelly, a former combat pilot, will be joined by retired astronauts Neil Armstrong and Gene Cernan. The flight academy, a replica of the inside of an aircraft carrier, is designed to interest students in careers in science, technology, engineering and math. (Source: Pensacola News Journal, 05/03/12)
