You’ll usually hear her talking about all things college, but did you know our CEO is also a space enthusiast and NASA Solar System Ambassador?

Join Julie and relive that momentous July evening when Nebraskans joined people across the globe to watch the enthralling images of Astronauts Armstrong and Aldrin exploring the moon a quarter of a million miles away.  And back in the Nebraska? Retrace the journey of Apollo 11 through the lens of life in the Cornhusker state in 1969. Learn more about the interesting connections and contributions Nebraskans made to the Apollo program, and to the space program today, as NASA continues to explore the wonders of the universe.

Join us for a fab evening to celebrate the end of summer – 1969 style! Gather up your friends and get truckin’ to Rock N Joe for locally sourced beer, wine and tasty bites to enjoy while grooving to the soundtrack of the summer of love. We’ll also have fab entertainment that will have you laughing, learning and feeling groovy while supporting Lead Up’s important work to help talented but underresourced students build far out futures.
