LaRC Hall of Honor

Slides-LAA talk McIver & Darden 14 July 2020

The Langley Alumni Association and the NASA Langley Research Center partnered to develop a Hall of Honor (HoH), to provide a way for distinguished LaRC researchers and managers to be honored for their exemplary careers and contributions to NACA, NASA and the nation at large in the pursuit of revolutionary scientific understanding and technological progress on the frontiers of aerospace sciences. The HoH also provides a focused opportunity for the local aerospace community to reflect on the contributions of these notable individuals who made enduring impacts on aerospace technologies. A Langley Research Center NACA and NASA HoH Committee receive & evaluates nominees & selects Honorees to be inducted into the Hall of Honor. This process is conducted by the HoH Committee in concert with a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the LaRC and the Langley Alumni Association dated January 11, 2016.

The culmination of these early efforts was the Class of 2015 Hall of Honor Induction Ceremony held at NASA Langley on August 13, 2015 in which 19 inductees were honored. Details & photos of the ceremony follow:
