NASA’s Space Flight Awareness Program recently recognized Christine Williams of Elmont, N.Y., director for Systems Engineering Leadership at NASA Headquarters, for outstanding support of human space flight.

Williams was recognized for contributing beyond her normal work requirements in an ongoing pursuit to bring insight and innovative thinking to NASA’s leadership programs and to improve performance and achieve tangible business results aligned with agency strategic goals.

For her contributions, Williams traveled last week to NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida to tour the center and participate in activities in conjunction with the planned launch of space shuttle Endeavour on the STS-134 mission to the International Space Station.

NASA’s Space Flight Awareness Program recognizes outstanding job performances and contributions by civil service and contract employees throughout the year and focuses on excellence in quality and safety in support of human space flight.

The Honoree Award is one of the highest honors presented to employees for their dedication to quality work and flight safety. Recipients must have contributed beyond their normal work requirements toward achieving a particular human space flight program goal; contributed to a major cost savings; been instrumental in developing material that increases reliability, efficiency or performance; assisted in operational improvements; or been a key player in developing a beneficial process improvement.
