Brunswick Business Journal Staff Report
 
September 5, 2018 – The Camden County Board of Commissioners last night appointed four more members to the Spaceport Camden Education and Workforce Subcommittee. It unanimously voted to add David L. Cotten, Chris Crumbly, Dominique Halaby, and Edgar Glenn Lightsey. 
 
“Since we first announced the Education and Workforce Subcommittee, I’ve been amazed by the talent stepping forward and their eagerness to serve,” said County Administrator and Spaceport Camden Project Lead Steve Howard. “It really showcases the assets Georgia has to offer the space industry and the educational opportunities spaceport Camden will provide to the next generation of scientists and engineers.”
 
Dr. David L Cotten is the Principal Investigator for the University of Georgia’s Small Satellite Research Laboratory; Chris Crumbly is the Executive Director of the Von Braun Center for Science & Innovation; Dr. Dominique Halaby is the Director of Georgia Southern University’s Business Innovation Group; and Dr. Glenn Lightsey is the Director of the Space Systems Design Lab and Associate Director of the Center for Space Technology and Research at Georgia Tech.
 
All four new members support the Spaceport Camden Education and Workforce Subcommittee’s task of identifying the needs of future spaceport users’ education and recommending K-12, technical college, and post-secondary curricula to prepare Georgia students for careers at Spaceport Camden.
 
These four new members join Chairperson Laura Forczyk and Dr. John E. Bradford, Adon Clark, Paige Coker, Dr. Shawn T. Cruzen, Dr. Glenn Deibert, Bill Garlen, Lisa Gleason, Jane Kinney, Leo C. Melody, Anthony J. Piplica, Millie Price, Lonnie Roberts, Pete Snell, Jessica Warren, and Dr. James R. Wilburn on the subcommittee. The group will develop a list of recommendations that Camden County will share with elected and appointed officials at local school boards, the Georgia General Assembly, and the University System of Georgia.
