Buzz Aldrin's ShareSpace Foundation Appoints New Executive Director

Buzz Aldrin's ShareSpace Foundation is excited and proud to announce the appointment of Linn LeBlanc as its Executive Director.

LeBlanc comes to Buzz Aldrin's ShareSpace with more than fifteen years of nonprofit experience, leading a national nonprofit, Astronaut Scholarship Foundation, for twelve years, as well as setting up new businesses in the US.

Buzz Aldrin's ShareSpace addresses science literacy by igniting children's passion for science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM). As Executive Director, LeBlanc will spearhead this dynamic new initiative of providing hands-on STEAM activities and inspirational messages to children in the United States and around the globe.

"Linn's achievements, combined with her dynamic and collaborative spirit and vast proven management skills make her ideally suited to lead our organization and ignite the spark of innovation in children," said ShareSpace President and Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin. "She will be an effective leader for ShareSpace and a real catalyst for fueling an interest in STEAM in young children."

"I am honored to fulfill Dr. Aldrin's vision of promoting science literacy with children in America and around the world," said LeBlanc. "This role is a tremendous opportunity to blend my passion for STEAM and young people. I look forward to being part of ShareSpace's tremendous accomplishments."

About Buzz Aldrin's ShareSpace Foundation: Selected by NASA to become an astronaut in 1963, Aldrin made his first space flight with James Lovell on Gemini 12. On July 20, 1969, Aldrin and Neil Armstrong became the first two humans to set foot on another world, when they made their historic Apollo 11 moonwalk. In 1998, Aldrin founded Buzz Aldrin's ShareSpace Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, which addresses science literacy by igniting children's passion for science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM) through delivering hands-on STEAM activities and inspirational messages.
