SIDNEY — Alex Gleason, son of Tim and Amy Gleason, will be starting an internship with Nasa in January 2022.
Gleason is currently a junior at Purdue University with a major in Physics and minors in Astronomy and Math. He graduated from Lehman Catholic High School in 2019 with the dream of someday becoming an astronaut and working for NASA.
According to Tim Gleason, “Alex is so excited. It is so neat to see a person have a dream, pursue that dream and then see the dream happen. I couldn’t be prouder of Alex.”
Alex Gleason was one of over 15,000 applicants nationwide for the internship positions. He will work at the NASA location in Huntsville, Alabama, for a semester and then plans on returning to Purdue to finish his studies.
