Chris Jones: Aerospace Engineer Makes Mentoring his Mission
Show Notes

John Carroll graduate and retired aerospace engineer, Chris Jones, Ph.D, was corporate vice president and president for Northrop Grumman's Technology Services.  In 2016, he was named Black Engineer of the Year at the STEM Global Competitive Conference in Philadelphia.  

Chris stops by Mainstreet to talk about how growing up in his diverse, blue-collar neighborhood of Havre de Grace helped groom him for later personal and career success.  He reminisces about his high school days and gives us a glimpse into the hobbies of an aerospace engineer.  

Even as he enjoys his retirement, Chris's work remains undone. He brings us up to date on his ongoing mission of mentoring students and encouraging young people from all backgrounds to pursue further study and careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).
