We have a new fresh faced Superintendent comming in to provide administrative leadership to the local school district (which includes NASA AMES property). In my own mind - I was looking to select a person that would have 'at least a chance' of setting up something like a small NASA / schools cooperative programs. Even just a district wide: 'get on the school bus, and go visit OUR OWN Mountain View SPACE CENTER!'
Ya got to start somewhere, a new leader here / a new leader there [my fingers are crossed].

SN is a member of the MVWSD Board, and also a graduate of UC Berkeley (like Ames Director Tu) but in Astronomy.
