Chancellor Mark S. Wrighton welcomed the new 2017 cohort and resident McDonnell Academy Scholars to the St. Louis Planetarium for dinner and a starlight presentation. The Scholars and other invited guests enjoyed a reception in the James S. McDonnell Planetarium lobby, before moving to the second floor for dinner.
Current Scholars and alumni presented one-minute thank you’s to voice their admiration of the contributions made by the McDonnell Academy’s founding benefactor, John F. McDonnell and Chancellor Mark S. Wrighton.
The evening culminated in a star show, featuring a brilliant simulated night sky on the 24-meter dome of the Planetarium.
