ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A Dougherty County student spent the last week enjoying an out of this world experience at a NASA facility.

Reginald Sherman earned a Honeywell Leadership scholarship to attend a program at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama.

The Westover High school senior is in Junior ROTC and plans to become an officer in the Marine Corps after college.

The program allows students from all over the world to engage in sessions on science, technology and engineering.

"It really made me feel like I was a special person, like I was able to go off and do something more, and I really do feel privileged that I was actually selected to go to this program," said Sherman.

Sherman was one of 238 students from 26 countries and 27  states to attend the program.
