Stennis Space Center Employee Ladner Receives Silver Snoopy Award

NASA’s Stennis Space Center employee Latisha Ladner of Kiln recently received the prestigious Space Flight Awareness (SFA) Silver Snoopy award.

Ladner is a work performance analyst for Syncom Space Services at Stennis. She was honored for her dedication in processing work requests in support of all Stennis programs and projects for the test area, including space shuttle main engine, J-2X, Taurus, Blue Origin, A-2 clamshell and RS-25 testing.

Astronaut Karen Nyberg presented the award. Ladner received a Silver Snoopy lapel pin flown on space shuttle Discovery during its STS-124 mission, along with a letter of commendation and certificate signed by Nyberg.

  1. 1965-1971 I was employed by Rockwell International as an electronic instrumentation Technician on the SII stage, and in 1969 (September?) received the Silver Snoopy Award with a picture and the papers that went with it. The award was presented by two astronauts but not signed by them and now we are trying to find out who they were for framing the papers to hang on the wall. At that time they were not in uniform, just in suits. I was thinking it was after Apollo 8 as they said that each astronaut on that flight wore a Snoopy pin on their suits in flight.
