The 2018 BBQ Social will feature Shayla Rivera, the Funny Rocket Scientist!

Shayla Rivera is an Aerospace Engineer and former Rocket Scientist with NASA turned salesperson, corporate trainer and Standup Comedian.

Her parents always made it clear that going to college was paramount in order to have a successful personal and professional life. Rivera attended Texas A&M University, earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Aerospace Engineering and added a great number of additional credits in her other passion, Psychology. After graduation, Shayla joined McDonnell Douglas Space Systems Division at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, where she worked on the NASA Space Shuttle and Space Station programs.

At the social, Mr. Joe Pearce, “Screwball of 2017", will present the “Screwball of 2018" Award. The tradition of naming someone as “Screwball” began in 1948 as a friendly rivalry joke during a session at the Symposium. The next year the joke was returned, and thus became an annual tradition. The name is bestowed in jest, but is intended literally. The recipient receives a plaque, a pin, and a lot of “ribbing.” Come out and see who will be named the new Screwball!
