John B. Herrington

John B. Herrington is the first member of a federally recognized Native American tribe (Chickasaw) to travel to space. His historic mission to the International Space Station (ISS) was the culmination of years of experience and training. It provided Herrington with a unique perspective that he enjoys sharing with audiences worldwide. After a successful career as an astronaut, he ventured into the commercial space arena and eventually found a new passion. Following a 6,920-kilometer bicycle ride across the USA, Herrington returned to university and earned a doctorate in Education. With humility and humor, John shares his stories of challenge, leadership, motivation and mentorship with diverse audiences of all ages and occupations. His multimedia presentations inspire and entertain, challenging people to seek out the best in themselves and in service to others.

Ariel Tweto

An accomplished private pilot, public speaker and TV personality, Ariel Tweto gained worldwide fame following her appearance in the hit reality series Flying Wild Alaska, which follows her family’s life in Alaska. Born and raised in Alaska, she is the president and founding member of Popping Bubbles, a non-profit organization dedicated to suicide prevention and helping people from rural communities overcome the barriers that prevent them from living happy and successful lives.
