NASA Administrator Charles Bolden today announced three changes to senior leadership at the Agency. Mr. Robert Lightfoot has been formally named Associate Director of NASA's Headquarters in Washington D.C.; Stennis Space Center Director Patrick Scheuermann will become Director of Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama; and former Stennis Deputy Director, Dr. Richard Gilbrech, will take Scheuermann's place as Director at Stennis Space Center.

"It's been a pleasure working with each of these gentlemen over the last year and a half, and I look forward to working with each of them in their new roles," said Rep. Steven Palazzo (R-MS), Chairman of the Space and Aeronautics Subcommittee. "I'm especially sad to see Director Scheuermann go, but he is leaving Stennis in great shape and in capable hands."
