OLLI Lectures

Reach for the Stars!

Hometown hero Scott Altman will discuss growing up in Central Illinois, his experiences with the Navy, and the wonders of flying and working in space. Scott graduated from Pekin Community High School in 1977, and his parents, Sharon and Fred Altman, still reside in Pekin. Scott is a graduate of the University of Illinois and the Naval Postgraduate School. He has received numerous honors, including the Navy’s Distinguished Flying Cross and NASA’s highest award, the Distinguished Service Medal.

A veteran of four space flights, Altman has logged over 51 days in space. In August 2012 he became Vice President for the newly formed ASRC Federal Space and Defense Agency.
