CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla., April 13, 2023 – Sidus Space, Inc. (NASDAQ:SIDU), a Space and Defense-as-a-Service satellite company focused on mission-critical hardware manufacturing; multi-disciplinary engineering services; satellite design, production, launch planning, mission operations; and in-orbit support, is pleased to announce that Carol Craig will be a featured speaker at the Junior Achievement National Convention on July 27, 2023 in Louisville, Kentucky.
This event is one of many that highlights Sidus’ commitment to supporting its community as part of its Sidus Serves initiative. The mission of Sidus Serves is to help keep our community thriving by combining our love of Space and our desire to leave Earth better than we found it. Through volunteerism and giving back, Sidus Serves believes that every person can make a difference.
“At Sidus Space, we firmly believe that it is our responsibility to give back to our community and we are committed to providing opportunities for our neighbors and educating the next generation of leaders,” said Carol Craig, Sidus Space Founder and CEO.
The framework for the Company’s Corporate Social Responsibility program supports four pillars that are foundational to Sidus’s strategic objectives:
- Educational and STEM-focused (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) programs
- Military and Veteran Affairs
- Environmental Initiatives
- Health & Human Services
As part of this commitment, Craig has been a consistent contributor to Junior Achievement over the last 15 years, where she has donated countless hours serving as Board Chair, classroom volunteer, and speaker for a female-focused STEM initiative.
“Since joining the Junior Achievement of the Space Coast’s Board of Directors in 2008, Carol has served as Board Chair, Business Hall of Fame Committee Chair, and in 2015 was inducted into the JA Space Coast Business Hall of Fame as Laureate. During the downturn of the Space Coast economy, Carol helped stabilize the organization, and her ongoing and consistent support–more than $170,000 since 2008–has allowed JA Space Coast to thrive and grow into one of the most highly regarded nonprofits in the region. Her most important contribution, however, has been as a classroom volunteer. Despite her skyrocketing career, she is consistently one of the first people to answer a call for volunteers and has lent her talents to Be Entrepreneurial, JA-in-a-Days, and most recently JA GLOW: Women in STEM, where her talk so impressed an audience of Secondary students that she had to sign autographs. Carol Craig’s investment, leadership, advocacy, authenticity, and service are matched by none,” said Anne Conroy-Baiter, President, of Junior Achievement of the Space Coast.
Junior Achievement is the world’s largest organization dedicated to educating students in grades K-12 about entrepreneurship, work readiness, and financial literacy through experiential, hands-on programs.
