On October 22, 2018, Kord employee Donnie Borst was awarded a coveted Silver Snoopy award by NASA for his contributions to the Space Launch System (SLS) Program. Of all the Space Flight Awareness awards, the Silver Snoopy best symbolizes the intent and spirit of Space Flight Awareness. An astronaut always presents the Silver Snoopy because it is the astronauts’ own award for outstanding performance, contributing to flight safety and mission success. Fewer than 1 percent of the aerospace program workforce receive it annually, making it a very special honor. The award is a sterling silver Snoopy lapel pin that has flown in space on a Space Shuttle mission, plus a certificate of appreciation and commendation letter for the employee, both signed by the astronaut.
Astronaut Stan Love presented the Snoopy Award to Donnie for his outstanding and dedicated efforts to provide accurate data to Boeing executive level management. Donna Brown, Kord’s vice president for NASA support efforts, stated “We are so very proud of Donnie and his dedicated support to the SLS program. He tackles every job he is given with intensity and thoroughness. Donnie embodies Kord’s commitment to going ‘above and beyond’ to exceed our customers’ expectations.”
