Space Foundation CEO Elliot Pulham will act as emcee for the Rotary National Award for Space Achievement (RNASA) Foundation gala at the Houston Hyatt Regency on Friday, April 26.

The RNASA Foundation has selected former United States Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-TX) to receive the 2013 National Space Trophy.

Kay Bailey Hutchison is a former United States Senator (R-TX) who served from June 1993 through January 2013. As the first and only woman elected to the Senate from the State of Texas, she also became the first U.S. Senator from Texas to receive four million votes in a single election. Hutchison was nominated by Lockheed Martin Space Systems Company Executive Vice-President Joanne Maguire. 

Pulham has a long history with the organization. He serves on the National Board of Advisors of the Rotary National Awards for Space Achievement (RNASA) Foundation and is a recipient of the rarely awarded RNASA Foundation Space Communicator Award - an honor he shares with such legendary communicators as CBS anchorman Walter Cronkite, CNN anchorman Miles O'Brien and astrophysicist Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson.
