Jeremy Norris originally from Gilbert, Arizona was named the Fall 2021 Alumni On the Move honoree. A graduate of Panhandle State in 2019 received a Bachelor of Business Administration in Computer Information Systems and was nominated by Shawn Joy.

Shawn Joy nominated Jeremy for his success directly following his graduation from Panhandle State. Coach Joy commented, “Jeremy going from OPSU to NASA is pretty exciting.”

Norris chose to attend Panhandle State after leaving Junior college to continue playing baseball at the collegiate level. He said, “I had a great friend who was already on the team and introduced me to OPSU.”

He currently works on the Mission System Operations Contract at the Johnson Space Center which services multiple programs such as the International Space Station and Commercial Crew Program. Norris is a member of the MCC Recon that has 9 members where we build Command and Telemetry products for the Mission Control Center in support of the various programs/Missions. He commented, “A fun fact is that out of the 9 members 4 of us have attended Oklahoma Panhandle State University.”

Norris has several favorite memories when he thinks back on his time at Panhandle State. He always enjoyed the football tailgates, baseball road trips, and working in the Dorm of Dorm.

He looks forward to catching a baseball game this spring to support the team. One of his favorite hobbies is playing golf, so he looks forward to entering the Belly Open for the annual fundraiser for the Athletic Department in the summer.
