Fifty-fourth Legislature                 Second Regular Session - 1998

                                      IN THE SENATE

                           SENATE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION NO. 127

                                  BY EDUCATION COMMITTEE

 1                               A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION

 4    Be It Resolved by the Legislature of the State of Idaho:

 5        WHEREAS,  Barbara  Morgan,  McCall  resident  and  teacher  in the McCall-
 6    Donnelly Elementary School, was chosen from among 11,000 teachers to  partici-
 7    pate in the Teacher in Space program in 1985; and
 8        WHEREAS,  Barbara  has continued to play a leadership role in space educa-
 9    tion with her work through NASA's Education Division; and
10        WHEREAS, NASA has recently announced that Barbara Morgan will  become  the
11    first mission specialist-educator to travel into space; and
12        WHEREAS, Barbara will now train as an astronaut and will travel into space
13    as a full-fledged participant in the program; and
14        WHEREAS,  Barbara has said that teaching will always be her first priority
15    in the space program, and her devotion to her own  students  and  to  students
16    everywhere is the preeminent value in her approach to space travel; and
17        WHEREAS,  Barbara  has  likened  this experience to turning the pages of a
18    book, with a story unfolding before the young people of America and the world,
19    piquing their interest in space, in exploration in general, and  in  broaching
20    new frontiers in learning.
21        NOW,  THEREFORE,  BE IT RESOLVED by the members of the Second Regular Ses-
22    sion of the Fifty-fourth Idaho Legislature, the Senate and the House of Repre-
23    sentatives concurring therein, that we commend her  character  and  qualifica-
24    tions  which  have  led  to  the  selection  of  Barbara  Morgan  as a mission
25    specialist-educator with the NASA space program. She is an example of the ded-
26    ication to education which is so typical of teachers and which is the  special
27    attribute  teachers bring into a successful classroom. We know that this expe-
28    rience will be shared with thousands of students, young  and  old,  who  still
29    cherish  exploration  and  new  ideas.  From her view in space, high above the
30    world we inhabit, Barbara will undoubtedly gain new insights to share with  us
31    all.  We  look  forward to the day when Barbara Morgan will return to an Idaho
32    classroom and to students whose education will be enriched by her experiences.
33    Students everywhere join the Idaho Legislature in wishing Barbara Godspeed.
