Dr. Hargens Recognized with NASA’s Highest Honor
Dr. Hargens has been selected to receive the NASA Distinguished Public Service Medal. He will be presented the
award this Thursday, June 15, 2017 at 8am PST in the Henry J. E. Reid Conference Center at NASA Langley
Research Center, Hampton, VA.
“This is NASA's highest form of recognition that is awarded to any non-Government individual
or to an individual who was not a Government employee during the period in which the service
was performed, whose distinguished service, ability, or vision has personally contributed to
NASA's advancement of United States' interests. The individual's achievement or contribution
must demonstrate a level of excellence that has made a profound or indelible impact to NASA
mission success, therefore, the contribution is so extraordinary that other forms of recognition
by NASA would be inadequate.”
UPDATE: The complete event can be viewed now on YouTube. Dr. Hargens is called by the chairman at 57:12 and is
given a heartfelt introduction from astronaut and former student Kjell Lindgren.
