THE FINAL FRONTIER: Marie Kingbird-Lowry, who completed a summer internship with NASA in 2009, partnered with the late Leann Dick on a research project—“The Potential Impact of the Proposed kV Transmission Line upon Heritage Resources within the Leech Lake Reservation”—which they presented at conferences in Bellingham, WA, Bismarck, ND, and Washington, D.C.

On January 22, 2010, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) announced that it has selected 105 of its best and brightest interns and fellows for the NASA Student Ambassador Program. Included in this elite group is Leech Lake Tribal College (LLTC, Cass Lake, MN) student, Marie Kingbird- Lowry—the only Minnesotan selected for this honor. NASA managers and mentors nominated the recipients from the hundreds of interns and fellows engaged in research and education opportunities across the agency.

As a member of the NASA Student Ambassadors virtual community, Kingbird-Lowry will interact with the agency while sharing information, making professional connections, and collaborating with peers. The Student Ambassadors will also represent NASA in a variety of venues and help the agency inspire and engage future interns and fellows.
