      Reach for the Stars: An Evening with John Casper

      Ret. Colonel John Casper, astronaut for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, has logged over 825 hours in space as well as 10,000+ hours in 52 different aircraft. He has received various honors and awards for his military and NASA service such as the NASA Medal for Outstanding Leadership and the National Intelligence Medal of Achievement, to name just a few.

      Ret. Col. Casper has graciously agreed to present on his space adventures as well as his role in helping families affected by the Challenger disaster through trauma and the importance of mental health. Included in the presentation will be spectacular photographs from space and keepsakes from his time at NASA. After speaking, Ret. Col. Casper will open the floor for questions.

      This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to learn more about counseling and trauma from an astronaut’s point of view. Black Mountain Counseling Center is incredibly grateful to Col. Casper for his willingness to participate in this event.

      Appetizers will be served during the reception. For dinner, carved top sirloin with a pomegranate demi-glace will be served, accompanied by wild mushroom risotto, fresh vegetable bundles, and assorted dinner rolls with honey butter. For dessert, guests will enjoy a housemade carrot cake with cream cheese frosting.
