We are very proud of Ignite employee Melissa Rios and the work she has done that earned her the Silver Snoopy Award. Melissa is instrumental in leading the coordination and planning for the mission critical shipments to and from the International Space Station. As the lead for Boeing’s packing, handling, storage and transportation activities she plays a critical role in the organization and facilitating shipment of space-related hardware between launch vehicle sites, government depots and suppliers. Her commitment, perseverance and outstanding performance directly contribute to flight safety and mission success. Melissa’s Silver Snoopy pin was flown aboard Atlantis on May 11, 2009 and landed on May 24, 2009.
