|"I'd like to say how honored I am to receive this award. If it wasn't for Christine Vanderleest, I wouldn't have had this amazing opportunity to learn and grow, so thank you Chris! Had I known sooner that such a job existed I would have skipped aerospace altogether and come straight to school... who would've thought I would get paid for something I love doing! From this career path I've gained many friends and met wonderful parents and students. Thank you Madrona for this nomination, and for your continued support." - Cindi Osejo
