Now this is a five star person from Spokane:

Its just so surreal that this moment has arrived, said Anne C. McClain, 34, the helicopter pilot, who is from Spokane, Wash., and graduated from the United States Military Academy at West Point. I truly dont remember ever wanting to be something else. The New York Times

Very accomplished yet humble person. She came to my place and watched a Zags this past season. No foolin'. Honest to goodness astronaut. Pretty awesome!

Can she rebound?

Presumably, as she can soar. 🌠

That's my sister! A huge GU fan and a great ambassador for Spokane. As she was selecting photos for the press releases, her biggest focus was finding images that captured Spokane, because she wanted the world to see the place that so favorably shaped her.

The word went out a few days ago among the G-Prep community that one of their alums is now among the astronaut corps. I hear she also went to Cataldo Catholic School.

Congrats to her, you and your family.

WOW! Awesome! Can you ask her if she can take a little stuffed Spike Bulldog with her into space and give the Zags a quick shout out from orbit?!

Maybe Spike can be the first MASCOT into space!
