Mobile Lowdown: Huntsville Edition

Posted on Thursday, March 13th, 2014.

Jesse Gutierrez (Associate Manager of Mobile Tour) and Diana Velez (Associate Manager of Marketing and Communications) are back for a second installment of The Mobile Lowdown!

Last month StoryCorps’ Mobile Tour parked at Gainesville, FL, and Diana and Jesse were nice enough to give us all the details. Now, we’re hitting the road once again to Huntsville, Alabama.

Today (March 13th) happens to be Opening Day for Huntsville, so it is the perfect time for Jesse and Diana to do their thing once again and give us the official Mobile Lowdown: Huntsville Edition.

Jesse, Diana–what do we have to look forward to this time?

City Highlights:

Diana: “Huntsville seems to be all about the stars–literally. The city is nicknamed ‘The Rocket City,’ because it has a lot of involvement with various U.S. space missions and is also home of the U.S. Space and Rocket Center.”

Jesse: “StoryCorps will be in the center of this unique town culture too. The MobileBooth is actually going to be parked at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center for our time in Huntsville.”

Opening Day Insider Information:

Diana: “Once again, it’s all about the stars, baby. Our first set of VIP Participants is the current CEO of U.S. Space and Rocket Center, Dr. Deborah Barnhart, and Edward O. Buckbee, the first CEO of the U.S. Space and Rocket Center. This interview will be followed by our second VIP interview with Ivy Joe Milan, soul singer and local celebrity, and Simba Foluke, Djembe drummer and musician.”
