Coach Owen Fulton was chosen as the DDF coach of the Year for the 2022-2023 season, and Coach Chaya Pike was elected to serve as the President of the State Coaches' Association until 2025.

On Wednesday, the RJES Space Club met with Claire Mallon, an aerospace engineer who works on satellites! πŸ›° After some uncertainty, we were able to establish the internet connection and make it happen, and we're so glad we did! Claire told the students all about how satellites are built and how many different people with many different jobs work together to build, launch, and monitor them. The students were then able to ask Claire questions about both satellites and space. Thank you to Claire for taking the time to meet with our students- we can't wait to do this again! #richardjohnsonelementary #spaceclub #metlakatla #alaska #space #students
