Get to Know Eileen Collins, JETC Keynote Speaker

"I saved up the money [$1,000], 20 years old, between my junior and senior year in college. I went to my local airport and asked them to teach me how to fly. And I learned after that first couple of flights that is what I wanted to do for a career. The fact that it led into the Space Program was not a coincidence. Because I think, tied in with my interest in flying, was also my interest in space." ...

Keynote Speakers

Noah GallowayNoah Galloway

Noah Galloway, just three months in to his second tour of duty during Operation Iraqi Freedom, experienced a life changing injury. On Dec. 19, 2005, he lost his left arm above the elbow and left leg above the knee in an Improvised Explosive Device attack. He was transported to Germany to receive medical treatment, remaining unconscious for five days. Galloway woke up late in the evening on Christmas Eve to learn he lost two of his limbs and sustained severe injuries to his right leg and his jaw. After a long stint in recovery and rehabilitation at Walter Reed Medical Center, Galloway did what many disabled veterans do, becoming withdrawn, out of shape and depressed. The fitness fanatic and hyper competitive athlete was now drinking, smoking and sleeping his days away. But late one night, Galloway took a long look in the mirror and realized there was more to him than the injuries. And he set a goal to get back in shape, be healthier and inspire others. Now a personal trainer and motivational speaker, he travels the country sharing his story, encouraging others to offer no excuses. Most recently, Galloway took third place on the hit show, Dancing with the Stars. 


Eileen CollinsCol. Eileen Collins, USAF (Ret.)

Col. Eileen Collins has led an inspiring life of adventure, leadership, and achievement. A female trailblazer, and the first woman to pilot and command an American spacecraft, Collins was named an astronaut by NASA in 1990. She quickly went on to become the first female pilot on a space shuttle with the Discovery flight in 1995, and the first female commander on the 1999 Columbia flight. The Columbia mission sparked keen interest among women and landed Collins in the National Women's Hall of Fame in Seneca Falls, New York. For her final mission she commanded Space Shuttle Discovery's historic "Return to Flight." This was NASA's first manned flight following the February 2003 loss of the Space Shuttle Columbia. During her NASA career, Eileen Collins was known for her calmness and cool demeanor under pressure, and logged 872 hours in space.One of America's most admired women and an incredible motivational speaker, Collins shares her extraordinary experiences as a test pilot, astronaut, and space flight commander with audiences around the world.
