PADUCAH, Ky. (2/6/14) — Lone Oak Middle School seventh grader Johnathon Kirkpatrick created the patch that has been chosen to be on the front cover of the Challenger Learning Center at Paducah's 2013 New Year's Card.
Framed copies of the card were recently presented to him and the school.
Kirkpatrick created the patch last school year in Ms. Alyson Calhoun's science class while preparing for his class trip to fly a simulated space mission to return to the moon at the center.
"Johnathon's patch features an eagle and American flag on the moon. It's a great representation of the moon mission," said Mellisa Duncan, center director.
The cards are sent to the contributors and patrons of the Challenger Learning Center including teachers, superintendents, legislators, campers, board members and donors. A card is even sent to the White House.
