Mission Specialist José Hernandez '85

Jose HernandezA second incredible moment came in late August, when we witnessed the fulfillment of the lifelong dream of Regent José Hernandez '85 to fly into space. The Stockton and University communities came together that night to watch the launch and cheer on one of our own. José, the son of migrant farmworkers, traveled 5.7 million miles in space aboard the Space Shuttle Discovery, orbiting the earth 217 times.
