WASHINGTON, DC— Thursday morning, speaking by phone, Congressman Mo Brooks congratulated Jody Singer on her appointment as Director of NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville. Congressman Brooks serves as Vice-Chair of the House Science, Space, and Technology Committee Space Subcommittee, and Director Singer had served as acting director of Marshall since July.
Congressman Brooks said, “I congratulate Jody on being appointed director of Marshall Space Flight Center. Marshall is one of NASA’s premier installations, and the center’s unique capabilities are essential to nearly every NASA mission. With a career spanning 30 years at NASA, most recently as acting director of Marshall, Jody has the breadth of experience and extensive knowledge needed to lead the center during this exciting return to manned deep space exploration. A Hartselle, Alabama native and University of Alabama graduate, Jody is right at home at Marshall in the Tennessee Valley. I look forward to working closely with Director Singer to maintain and expand Marshall’s role in current and future missions, and I am pleased to have a partner at Marshall dedicated to maintaining America’s global preeminence in space.”
Announcing the appointment, NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine said, “Jody’s deep management experience over three decades at the project, program and center levels will be a huge asset to Marshall’s critical work supporting NASA’s goals of returning to the Moon to stay. Her proven leadership abilities and close connections to Marshall’s work and the human spaceflight community made her the right choice to lead Marshall at this pivotal time.”
