Guest Speaker

The Circle 1000 Founders’ Committee welcomed guest speaker Hayley Arceneaux to tell us about her exciting space mission and her purposeful life mission at this year’s Founders’ Celebration Brunch. A 31-year-old pediatric osteosarcoma survivor, Hayley became the youngest American and the first person with a prosthetic body part launched into space when she was chosen for SpaceX’s Inspiration4 all-civilian mission in 2021. Hayley was selected due to her inspiring story of giving back. After being treated at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital at age 10, she returned to work there as a physician assistant. Hayley published her story last year in Wild Ride: A Memoir of I.V. Drips and Rocket Ships.
