Young alumnus received NASA Space Flight Awareness Trailblazer Award
Earlier this year, Brant Meredith, B.S.M.E. ’17, received the NASA Space Flight Awareness Trailblazer Award in recognition for his “significant contributions to the Exploration Ground Systems Team at Kennedy Space Center and outstanding support to NASA’s human spaceflight mission.”
Meredith is a mechanical operations engineer at Kennedy Space Center in Florida for Jacobs Technology, a contractor for NASA. He’s been with the company for over four years.
The Space Flight Awareness (SFA) Program is a NASA-managed motivational and recognition program with invited representation from NASA and contractors having major responsibilities for human spaceflight mission success, according to NASA.
The program is managed by NASA Headquarters Human Exploration and Operations Mission Directorate. The award is geared toward people early in their careers with NASA.
Meredith began with Jacobs Technology at Kennedy Space Center shortly after his graduation from Baylor, where he was a BYX fraternity officer and active in intramural sports.
