MONTCLAIR, CA – This past week, Rep. Gloria Negrete McLeod (D-Chino) visited Dorothy Grant Elementary School in the City of Fontana where seven students from Ms. Beverly Matheson’s 4th grade class made contact with astronauts aboard the International Space Station using amateur radio.

The Amateur Radio International Space Station Program (ARISS) is a joint venture by NASA and the Amateur Radio Satellite Corporation to facilitate communication between astronauts aboard International Space Station and schools around the world.  ARISS’s goal is to inspire interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education.

“Promoting STEM education is very important because it opens many doors of opportunities for our students interested in pursuing these fields,” said Rep. Negrete McLeod.  “I applaud Ms. Matheson, Dorothy Grant Elementary School, and the Fontana Unified School District for facilitating this event because it helps motivate our next generation of scientists, engineers, and astronauts here in the Inland Empire.”

The event was a great success.  Dorothy Grant Elementary plans on contacting the International Space Station next year.

I’m on a mission to help write all kinds of stories that can be of value to others.”Ghostwriter Donald MacLaren 3

Mr. MacLaren, who prefers to be called Don, says, “I tell clients not to hold back, but just tell your stories or write about your ideas, and I can work to organize and structure what has to be done.”

Donald MacLaren has been able to help his clients in the following ways:

  • Works with a Ph.D. associate who reviews and rereads, adding insight and suggestions.
  • Helps with the design of the book covers.
  • Makes the books available as paperbacks and eBooks internationally on the Internet.

Following three outstanding “Women for Pete” events this week highlighting his commitment to equality for women, the coalition will continue to organize women supporters and build on the grassroots momentum of his campaign.

“Women need an advocate in Congress who will be committed to fighting for equal pay, raising the minimum wage, providing quality education for our children and preserving their right to make their own health decisions,” Aguilar said. “I am humbled that women from across the Inland Empire have put their trust in me to fight for them and am honored that they have come together to stand with me in this campaign.”
