On June 16, 2017, Tracy Drain joined KTW as the first featured guest in the Modern Thinkers Series.
Tracy is a prime example of a female that has been successful in a male-dominated field, and she has a captivating story to tell about her rise to the top of the corporate and social ladder.
On June 16, 2017 in collaboration with the Kentucky Science Center, 150 middle school students joined Tracy by invitation only in the morning for a two hour multi-faceted program.
That evening Tracy joined us at Copper and Kings for a ticketed event that began with a pre-program reception at 5:30 p.m. and her presentation at 6:30 p.m. Young adults and the young at heart were invited to join Tracy for a meet and greet, intimate conversation, and post-event question and answer session. Tracy shared insights about growing up in Kentucky, the development of her career and the challenges she faced while shattering the glass ceiling. With a charismatic personality, Drain is well equipped to stimulate interest in her field of inquiry and showcase her excitement about solving new and complicated problems.
The evening event included:
- Keynote Talk (Tracy Drain, Flight Systems Engineer at NASA)
- Multimedia Art Exhibition (Curated by August Northcut)
- Live Collaborative Musical Performance
- Film Screening of original documentary piece by the Kentucky to the World production team.
