MSU alumnus Ray Gildea (front) recently served as a special guest for "Honorable Mentions," the new official podcast of MSU's Judy and Bobby Shackouls Honors College. Gildea's family made a generous 2017 donation that enabled MSU’s continued partnership with the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation, which this year honored MSU students Hannah Scheaffer of Ruston, Louisiana, and Zoe Fowler of Columbus. Gildea is pictured here with Wade Leonard, back left, the honors college's outreach and student services coordinator, and David Hoffman, back right, interim director of the college's Office of Prestigious External Scholarships. To learn more about MSU's newest Astronaut Scholarship recipients, click here.
