Neoga Alum Speaks to Students

Mr. Rick Jakle, a 1960 graduate of Neoga High School, spoke to Mr. Faulkner's Media Study class, Mr. Coderko's Physical Science class, and Mr. Coderko's Physics class on October 4. Mr. Jakle and two classmates brought much notoriety to Neoga in the late 1950's when they launched a model rocket over a mile high. The work of the students gained attention from national news media and NASA's top rocket scientist of the time. 


We thank Mr. Jakle for his time in imparting several lessons learned during his time as a proud Neoga High School student.
