Overview:

Amanda Stubblefield was inducted into the Space Camp Hall of Fame in 2007. As a child, Amanda witnessed the first woman travel into space onboard the Challenger. Since that moment she knew she wanted to pursue a career in the space program. Amanda attended space camp for the first time in 1987 and returned in 1995 to serve as a counselor for several years. She received an engineering degree from Vanderbilt and went on to be employed in Houston, TX at the Johnson Space Center. There she works with astronauts and cosmonauts that will travel to the space station. The Space Camp Hall of Fame was designed to honor graduates, former employees and supporters who have distinguished themselves in their respective careers or made considerable in-kind contributions in an effort to help further the goals of the Space Camp program.
