CHS Student Receives Scholarship to U.S. Space Camp

CHS student Charles Kim has been selected to receive a U.S. Space Camp scholarship by the Aerospace Education Foundation. Charles will spend an educational and fun-filled week at U.S. Space Camp in Huntsville AL during the week of August 15, 2005. The scholarship includes roundtrip airfare, tuition, and room and board. The Aerospace Education Foundation is sponsoring the scholarship in honor of the 50th Anniversary of Air Force Space and Missiles.

The Aerospace Education Foundation is an affiliate of the Air Force Association, the professional military association for the Air Force. Charles, a sophomore, is the son of Won and Jung Kim of Carol Stream. "I am so proud of Charles," said Annette Rubino, CHS Physics teacher and advisor of the school's Aviation Club. "This is a wonderful opportunity for him. I'm sure he'll enjoy it and learn a great deal while he's there."
