Admiral Farragut Academy release
50th Anniversary of Charles Duke's Walk on the Moon

Join us for a once in a lifetime evening featuring a reception and dinner with moonwalking astronaut, philanthropist, Farragut alumnus, and national hero, Brigadier General Charles Duke USAF, (Ret.) '53S.

Thursday, February 3, 2022
6:00-9:00 p.m.
DeSeta Hall, Admiral Farragut Academy
St. Petersburg, Florida

Come celebrate this National Hero with a special evening including cocktails, dinner, and entertainment to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of Charlie Duke's walking on the moon. The evening will also host a silent auction featuring rare NASA memorabilia.

The Master of Ceremonies for this special evening is Nicole Stott: retired NASA astronaut, author of the newly released book "Back To Earth: What Life in Space Taught Me About Our Home Planet - And Our Mission to Protect It," and close friend of Mr. Duke's. Stott was the CAPCOM for the ISS Expedition 10 crew, is an aquanaut, and flew two spaceflights. She spent 104 days on the International Space Station and was on the final flight of the Space Shuttle Discovery. Highlights from her spaceflights include performing a spacewalk (10th woman to do so), painting the first watercolor in space, and the life-changing view of our home planet. She is a co-founder of the Space for Art Foundation – uniting a planetary community of children through the awe and wonder of spaceflight and the healing power of art. Nicole and her husband Chris are proud parents to son Roman who is a 2021 Admiral Farragut graduate.
