Lots of little boys want to be astronauts when they grow up, but 6-year-old Andrew's goal is a bit more specific: He wants to be a mission specialist aboard the International Space Station.
"I would be based out of the Kennedy Space Center in Florida and study science about the ISS," says Andrew, a first grader at Greenmont Elementary in Wood County.
Andrew visited the Kennedy Space Center on a trip to Florida with his family, but that's not his only inspiration. Andrew's mother, Karen, earned a degree in aerospace engineering at the University of Florida. Andrew's father, Larry, also earned his degree there. They know that Andrew's SMART529 college savings plan will help him achieve his goals -- whatever they turn out to be.
Bright futures begin with SMART savings.
