Captain Robert “Hoot” Gibson
I have had the pleasure of working extensively with Ms. Salido at the United States Space and Rocket Center (USSRC) and SpaceCamp, as well as in other space related activities. She is an excellent role model and has experience with children as well as adults in these roles.
Her endeavor to raise funding and support to bring Pascua Yaqui girls to SpaceCamp is so very impressive and giving! This plan will open the eyes of these young people to the wonders of science,mathematics, aviation and space, but not only to the girls that attend. From the association with their friends and schoolmates, this program will bring attention to the Pascua Yaqui Nation and I expect that this will really accelerate the education and interest of these young people.
I am so impressed with the importance of Ms. Salido’s plans that I am financially sponsoring the attendance of one of the girls in this first group of attendees and I do plan to continue with personal and financial support to this exciting endeavor!
Ms. Salido is indeed a talented young woman and one of the most pleasant and capable people I have ever worked with in a long career in my highly technical field of Aerospace. She is truly a self-starter, and her passion for this program is very evident and impressive!
I cannot recommend her more highly and I will be happy to speak with anyone on her behalf!
