I love the nostalgic atmosphere of the game and the campus; it is a special blessing to walk by Denny Chimes with my children. #Our67 #RollTide #family
United Launch Alliance (ULA) selected Blue Origin’s BE-4 engine to power the booster of the Vulcan Centaur rocket. Now that the company won the contract, Blue Origin will construct their facility announced in 2017 on approximately 46 acres in Cummings Research Park and bring hundreds of jobs to the area.
The United States is in the space race again. And what an appropriate and nostalgic time in history as we, in 2019, will celebrate the 50th anniversary of man on the moon. The presence of these global companies highlights their important role as our state leads the nation in the aerospace industry.

Thank you to all who organized Riverfest in Decatur on Saturday. The annual barbecue cook-off at Ingalls Harbor attracts competitors from across our nation and includes music, children’s activities, vendors, and award winning barbecue. Proceeds benefit the local community and nonprofit organizations around Decatur and Morgan County.
We had a lot of fun and enjoyed the breeze on the river with family and friends! (P.S. Check out the girls in the Polaris, Made in Alabama!) #Our67
It is difficult to put into words the emotion experienced today as we climbed 110 stories in memory of fallen 9/11 firefighters.
Each participant was assigned a fallen hero. To the family of Captain Thomas C. Moody, I will climb annually in your honor. #NeverForget
Thank you to all who organized Hartselle Depot Days, a family friendly event in downtown Hartselle with crafts, music, food, and fellowship that attracts over 19,000 people annually.
A very special thank you to our friend Congressman Mo Brooks, who ran up into the stands and handed my daughter a game ball during the Congressional Baseball Game in Washington DC earlier this year - he signed the ball for her at Depot Days
It was an honor to join Calhoun Community College today at the Decatur Campus for a ceremony to commemorate a new shelter for their Pre-Apprentice Lineworker Program. The shelter, donated by HDT Global, will allow instructors to teach courses directly on the lineworker training site, thus eliminating the need for students to travel across the street to traditional classrooms. This is a wonderful example of collaboration between the public and private sector.

GOOD NEWS: Innovations from Alabamians employed in the aerospace industry have changed the world. To continue that momentum and retain a level of expertise in any field, it is important for leaders to foster a culture that emphasizes professional development and training of current as well as future generations.
Flight Works Alabama is a workforce development initiative created from dialogue between industry and education as to what skills are deemed necessary to compete effectively in a global economy. The Flight Works Alabama simulation environment, strategically placed near Airbus’ aircraft factory, serves as an excellent way to introduce students to careers in aerospace and aviation. We are looking forward to the Flight Works Alabama grand opening in late 2019 and the talent that will develop as a result of this partnership between the public and private sector.
