June Scobee 1

.

June Scobee Rogers watched in horror on the morning of January 28, 1986, as her husband and his six crew members faced catastrophic results immediately after lift-off on the Space Shuttle Challenger.  Even more disturbing, aboard the shuttle was the first teacher in space, Christa McAuliffe, and tens of thousands of children had been watching the launch in schools across the country and around world.

 

June has faced many hardships as a child, including poverty and homelessness, but today she will tell us the inspiring story of her life and her faith; her marriage to her teenage sweetheart at just 16 years old, and how she has created The Challenger Center, which has benefited over 4 million children.  She was a classroom teacher herself and even a college professor.
