C in C is currently a contented fourth grade teacher at Columbus, who feels blessed to also have the opportunity to train the fifth grade Young Astronauts. He fervently hopes that his current fourth graders, along with future fourth grade classes, will be his astronauts of tomorrow. C in C harbors a secret wish – that one day he will see one of this year’s astronauts matriculate at Union College, a place he holds near and dear to his heart. (And let us all remember that little Union College knocked off the mighty college hockey powers to capture this year’s NCAA Division 1 men’s hockey championship. C in C has not been able to wipe the smile off his face since that epic victory.)

C in C owes a special debt of gratitude to the parents of CMS Young Astronauts, whose enthusiasm and dedication has clearly been passed onto their children.
