On Monday, June 2, 2014 grade 7 students from across Trillium Lakelands District School Board were invited to the Huntsville Summit Centre to attend to a special presentation by Colonel Chris Hadfield. Over 1000 students listened to Colonel Hadfield’s message on the importance of good character, leadership, citizenship, and the environment. Colonel Hadfield even performed a song with Huntsville High School’s The Song Project.
Through his 21-years as an astronaut and three spaceflights, Colonel Hadfield has become a worldwide sensation. He has harnessed the power of social media to make outer space accessible to millions and has infused a sense of wonder into our collective consciousness – not felt since humans first walked on the moon. Called “the most famous astronaut since Neil Armstrong,” Colonel Hadfield continues to bring the marvels of science and space travel to everyone he encounters.
